I found an unopened, yet empty bottle of a 1988 Perrier Jouet Champagne.  Is this worth anything? Didn't want to recycle until I was sure.

Hi Jovan,

I think this was originally made as a shop display as I can't think of any other way you could have an unopened, empty bottle!

It might fetch a few dollars on Ebay if you think it's worth the bother. Remember to list it as an empty shop display item or they'll get cross because private sale of alcohol isn't allowed in the US Ebay!

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.
