If you happen to have a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin 1772 Champagne, then you have all would be considered a world treasure.  The Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin vineyard was established in 1772 in Reims, France.  It was established by Philippe Clicquot-Muiron who played a significant role in establishing champagne as a favored drink of the French upper class.  A 1772 vintage would not be at all like modern champagnes, as the processes used were different from modern champagnes.  The first truly modern champagnes are considered to be the 1811 comet vintage of Veuve Clicquot.  Champagnes made at this winery were considered to be favored by the royal Courts of Queen Elizabeth II.  To answer your question, if you had a true bottle of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin 1772, it would be priceless. As far as being "Pink Label”, that is a purely modern term.

The oldest known bottles from this maker were discovered in 2008 in a castle on the Isle of Mull in Scotland.  The bottle is 1893 vintage and is in mint condition.  It is now on display at the visitor center at the Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin winery in Reims, France.

If someone happens to have an actual bottle of antique vintage wine or champagne they have a treasure.  A bottle of Heidsick 1907 from a shipwreck can easily fetch $275,000 at an auction such as Sotheby’s.  If you happen to have an old bottle of champagne, there is also a question of whether it is still drinkable.  Drinking an old bottle of champagne could be dangerous, but there have been some cases of 200-year-old bottles of champagne still remaining drinkable. 

A bottle of Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin  Pink Label Champagne can range from around $60.00 a bottle to around $175 a bottle depending on vintage. More information about the champagnes and the winery can be found at
