Wine/Value?

Question
I have an unopened bottle, 750 ml, of Cuvee (?) Dom Perignon
1976, what would be the sale value & if I choose to open it & enjoy it, would it still be good?

Answer
Hi Tom,

This is getting rather old now, even for such a fine DP but I think you are in for a treat if you open it - assuming it's been stored properly - lying down in a cool dark place.

Replacement would cost at least $500, plus taxes, and I think you could hope for bids within sight of that if the bottle is pristine in terms of color, level, label and capsule. Wine Commune (http://www.winecommune.com/) should be able to help - but don't forget to allow for their commission, etc.

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.
