not sure what to think of this...

Posted by hhotdog, Mar 21, 2011.

got this from a friend of a wine friend...let me know what you think?  i have the name and the # of the contact if you want.  i am sooo removed from any connections to any sale.  sorry, gotta say that...




here's how it reads:




I was asked by an aging friend to help him in the sale of some wines and champagnes that he has had stored. Here's a list of what he has and 1 have pictures of all if you need to see them. Is there any interest in what he has? Thank you for your time.

1969 Chateau Mouton Rothschild 1976 Tattinger Comte de Champagne

1975  Dom Perignon Moet Chandon

1976  Dom Perignon Moet Chandon

1980 Dom Perignon Moet Chandon (3 bottles)

1980 Chateau Mouton Rothschild (12 bottles)

1982 Mondavi Napa Valley Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (6 bottles)

1827-1977 Grand Marnier Liqueur Cuvee Speciale Cent Cinquantenaire with box

Best Regards,

The Grand Marnier is incorrect it can't be from those date's as it celebrates 150yrs I think it came out in 2005.

To early to sell yet.

Perhaps you should contemplate going to an auction house.

He has no prices?  Anyone interested would want to know about storage and pricing and how long he's owned them.  If he bought from someone else, that can be a deal killer.

According to Parker in his Bordeaux book, 69 was a disastrous vintage Rated 0 stars out of 5, 80 is rated 2 stars for Pauillac.

I suspect that the Moutons have little value other than to a collector needing to fill a gap in a set.

Parker Rates Champagne Vintages

75 - 90/100

76 - 90/100

80 - He says is non vintage can you check date on the 80

As greg said you can't just expect people to go off the information you've given, much more is required.

And just because one particular vintage was rated crap doesn't mean a thing as it might be (big might) the last vintage around from that decade, which can change the value (only because it could be rare as these vintages were very often consumed within their year or soon after of production{as it was rated crap} ) BUT THE WINE HAS TO HOLD UP.

Provenance and bottle condition are the supreme issues. Then comes vintage and what that house did during it....

Price might also be useful. ;-)

had similar conversations with the "wine friend" of the friend.  all the comments are great advice to anyone looking into these wines.  can always count on the "snoothers"!  have looked into some of the prices and will get back to my "wine friend" to see if i can get more info as it is way to vague for now.  will be back with more as it comes in.
