Question
I have a bottle unopened and in very good condition of Charles Heidsieck Brut 1959 with label exclusively selected for Pan American. What is the value and how do I find a buyer? Thank You.

Answer
Hi Bernard,

I'm afraid this is now very old indeed for any Champagne, even one from the excellent '59 vintage, so it may not be easy to find anyone interested in buying a single bottle.

It might be worth asking Wine Gavel (http://www.winegavel.com/) what hammer price they'd hope to achieve if you were to enter your bottle into their on-line auction system but they may not feel willing to accept it - in which case I'm sorry but your bottle has no value.

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.
