hello, my name is Daniel and I am in possession of a bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne bottled in 1943 at the 200 hundred years of aniversare.este fratuzeasca and champagne and has 5 liters (I think) at least is a large glass and is DRY IMPERIAL code is  N M 3342272 .'d be interested to know if that is its current market value. thank you

Hi Daniel

Even the best Champagnes begin to show their age after twenty-five years, and this one is a lot older than that!  I am afraid that it is now well past its prime, and won't have much interest to connoisseurs or collectors.  I doubt that you'd get much interest from either a retailer or at an auction.

I am sorry that I can't give you more exciting news.
