Question
Hi Mr. Ling, I would appreciate it if you would give me an idea of the value, and whether this bottle is worth keeping as an investment, or drinking?
1989 Baron Philippe de Rothschild Mouton-Cadet Bordeaux

Thanks much, Jeff
Virginia, USA

Answer
Hi Jeff,

Mouton-Cadet is a brand of good-quality Bordeaux blend produced by the owners of the great First Growth Ch Mouton-Rothschild but having no other connection with it.

It's intended for drinking on release or within a few years of it so your bottle may be in decline by now; it certainly won't improve by further keeping and offers no investment opportunities.

I suggest you drink it sometime as it wouldn't be possible for you to sell a single bottle lawfully.

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.
