Question
QUESTION: I am in Las Vegas NV and I am trying to research this wine I was given,label reads like this:

1978 Leroy Beaune Toussaints
         Appellation Controlee

        Mis en boutielle par
        Negociants a Auxey Meursault, Cote-d'Or

And I cant find it anywhere would like to get  est. pricing as well.

ANSWER: Hi Rich,

There's a good background to Beaune wines at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaune_wine that you might like to see.

Regarding your bottle: Les Toussaints is one of the many Premiers Crus in this large commune - which lacks any Grands - and should be a good example of its kind if you have kept it properly, lying down in a coll dark place.

Dom Leroy is a highly-regarded negociant, ranking only just behind DRC according to this profile: http://www.wineanorak.com/leroy.htm and 1978 was an excellent vintage.

I don't think you'd be able to replace this for much under $500 - if you could find any - given the pedigree.

Regards,

David

QUESTION: Would you happen to know of any prospective buyers in Las Vegas by chance? as I have 11 bottles of this wine

Answer
Hi Rich,

It wouldn't be lawful for you to sell these privately in the USA but I think Wine Commune (http://www.winecommune.com/) would be happy to accept them into their on-line auction system if the bottles are pristine in terms of color, labels, levels and capsules.

(Their catalogue sale valuation may not reach my retail offer estimate and don't forget to allow for their sales commission.)

Regards,

David
