i have a bottle of 1858 cognac grande champagne chateau DU Solencon i would like a value & possibly sell this bottle. could you help me

Hi David,

It's difficult to value vintage Cognacs because they are not commonplace and are a specialist collector's market where buyers set great store on the condition of the bottle in terms of color, level, label and capsule.

However I think we could be talking well into four figures USD if the bottle is pristine so I suggest you get it appraised professionally; Wine Commune ( would probably be able to help.

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.


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!)

I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
