Hi David,

I have a bottle of Charles Heidsieck 2008 Brut Réserve Magnum - Champagne Charles Heidsieck 1,5l. I wonder if you could give me a valuation on this. I've been told the Champagne won several prices, but honestly i don't believe... :)
I live in Switzerland.

thanks for any help

regards ruben

Answer
Hi Ruben,

I'm afraid I don't have any information about the value of this in Switzerland as it's only just coming onto the market but Steinfel's (http://www.steinfelsweine.ch/) might be able to suggest a catlogue valuation as a potential auction entry.

Charles Heidsieck is a reputable Champagne house and it's commonplace to quote prizes from the past as part of the promotional copy on their labels. They aren't very relevant though as that was then, not now.

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.
