Hmmm. Interesting. I'm also pretty sure there wasn't a drinking age restriction even though Athos said that Dartagnon was too young.

While the sparkling wine we know modernly as "Champagne" did not exist in the 17th century, wines from the Champagne region were well known as far back as the 5th century. During that time frame it was not uncommon to refer to a wine by the region it came from.

It was Porthos that said D'artangan was too young, not Athos.

From what I know, there wasn't a legal drinking age, but that doesn't mean the Musketeers themselves might not have had a group or individual standard. I doubt it though. Highly diluted alcoholic beverages don't go rancid like water does, and were what most people (kids included) drank at the time.
