We were given a bottle of red wine, picture attached, is it ok to drink, or best to sell or chuck way?  Thanks Olivia  . London

Answer
Hi Olivia,

I'm afraid I can't see much pleasure awaiting you here as 1967 was a faily ordinary vintage that hasn't kept well so I think any Bordeaux Superieur will have been at its best in the early '70s.

I would't chuck it untasted though as surprises do happen; but with caution as you may not want to finish the bottle.

(Or you could invite the giver to share it with you if you fancy what may be a test of your diplomacy!)

Regards,

David

Expertise

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Experience

I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

Organizations
I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
