Italian police have found 9,000 bottles of fake Moët & Chandon Champagne in a shed in the countryside near Padova. It is one of the most significant seizures of counterfeit bubbly in Europe. Analysis of the content revealed it was sparkling wine.

The counterfeit Champagne is said to have been worth around €350,000, but could have been sold for more than €1.8m had they used the 40,000 fabricated Moët & Chandon labels that were also discovered.
