We start the week with both an exclusive bottle and a philanthropic desire: Here comes a Réserve d’Austerlitz Fine Champagne Age Inconnu that is located in Belgium.
The Reader writes “My father received this bottle as a gift when he was Deputy general director of Radio France, my mother kept it preciously in an old “bodega” in Spain till I was sent to clean the house and received the bottle as a gift from my mother for cleaning the place. Both my father and mother are now dead and I would like to invest the benefit of this sale on a project that aims to support poor coastal population to refit old fishing and cargo boats into hybrid (sails-engine) passenger and cargo coastal ships to foster local transportation and commerce of fair trade goods.”

The label reads: Only one label with the following information from top to bottom:
on the bottom of the label some parts of the words are erased, we can still read:

Tax labels, revenue, signs or similar: There is one old grey wax seal above the label, partly broken. We can see three keys on it.
