I retrieved these bottles from a basement in Brentwood , Ca. The land of movie stars , etc. This home was built in the early 1900s is my guess. All the doorways were very small. I had to walk down a small dirt path around the back , and overgrown bushes partially covered the small door. Immediately inside was a very , very old solid , one piece 4 legged table that appeared to be put in place before the door was built as there was no way to get it out. Except for the very top , it appeared to have deep chiselled marks all over it. Looked like it was carved from a solid tree trunk. It was a large cellar/basement and dirt , bottles everywhere. Some still had booze in them. I saw bottles dated through the 1960s. There were hundreds of bottles. I just grabbed these as they were old and looked cool. I know nothing about bottles. The oldest , once had a full label on it , but was torn in half somehow amongst my many moves. The label read something to the effect of "Dieux Champagne 1811". Another appeared to be from an auction house. Any help , info , value , etc on these would be appreciated. I'm tired of carrying these around in a box. Thinking about the old bottle more , it might have said "Chateux". ThanksName:  20220512_135519.jpg
