Answer
Steven,

Mouton Cadet is the generic Bordeaux produced by the Baronne Rothschild of Mouton. It was created as a simple everyday wine and intended to be drunk within a year or 3 of release. Even though 1947 was a very good vintage I would not expect that wine to still be drinkable even if storage conditions have been pristine. At auction it might draw some interest but I'd be surprised if it went for more than $20-40.

The Chateauneuf is also from a very good vintage and a more recent one. The producer however is is a negociant who is not particularly distinguished. If the wine has been perfectly stored it may be drinkable although 10 years or so past it's prime. It also may draw minimal interest at auction. $15-$30.

Expertise

I can answer most any question about wine- types, styles, grape varieties, regions, vintages, proper storage, production, wine and food pairing, wine service, decanting, proper glassware, serving temperatures etc. Regarding questions about specific bottles of wine, since I live in the U.S. my focus is on wines imported here. I can't answer questions about spirits and liquor valuations.
