World's Oldest Champagne

I was unable to attend a recent tasting at Perrier-Jouet during which they opened one of their last three bottles of the 1825 vintage. According to accounts of the tasting, the 1825 was still drinkable, but nearly devoid of bubbles and tasting more like a sherry than a Champagne. For those of you still holding on to your 1825's this Pirate says, drink now. Arrrrrgh.
