Champagne 1966 Vintage to be auctioned in memory of Moore  Add/Read Comments

Snooth Wine Search:


A rare bottle of 1966 champagne direct from the cellars of the Maison Dom Perignon, signed by all of that summer's World Cup-winning team, is to be auctioned next month. It has been given an estimated £5,000 and £8,000 valuation - though the sky could be the limit for a football aficionado. Even the lower limit would be a champagne record.

"The proceeds will go towards the charitable foundation set up by Stephanie Moore in memory of her husband, Bobby, the only member of the 1966 squad who is no longer alive. Bobby Moore died of bowel cancer aged 51 in 1993, since when Mrs Moore has raised millions of pounds for research into the disease, which can be treated successfully in 80 per cent of cases if detected early enough yet remains Britain's second biggest cancer killer."

Andrew. This is the perfect present for you to get me for my 40th birthday in June!

Yes! I was a world-cup year baby.

Don't you think I deserve it?

I cant imagine a 66 champagne would still taste any good, its being a bit old by now. We opened a bottle of 69 champagne back in the early 90s and it had already lost most of its fizz and had turned rather sherry like.

Are there actually any incidences of champagne that old being any good? I have been wine tasting a couple of times in the Epernay region and always was led to believe that generally 12 years is about the age limit.

well i just read what was said about the 1966 bottle of champagne,well i have one bottle of MOET et CHANDON a epernay.champagne Cuvee Dom perignon ,vintage 1966,i did have two bottles but one was opened 4 days ago and it was as nice as any ive had in a long time,and looking at the bottle i have in my hand its got as much fizz in it as a bottl that i could go and buy now from any shop,so if any one is wishing to own this bottle its for sale ,from the sale of this bottle the money will go to a charity ,so if any one is looking for such please email me ,,
