it's depend on how good the cork is. some good quality cork can last more than 150 years, but most of them are not. if the cork is broken, then the alcohol won't good anymore, due to humidity and evaporation

Maybe. That depends on the cap/cork 150 years ago, it was probably corked. Corks generally only last about 50 years or less. If the cork got damaged then you may have lost some alcohol due to evaporation. Some high end wineries have professionals that travel to various wine cellers to re-cork wines on a periodic basis.
