Wine/Wine value


I have a bottle of Grand Vin de Chateau Latour Premier Grand Cru Classe 1967 wine.  I am interested in selling it but have no idea what a reasonable price would be.  I live in the Ontario Oregon.  I have looked online but I see a wide variety of prices for this particular wine.  Any information would be appreciated.


Even though it's a top tier Bordeaux it's not a very desirable wine for auction for a couple of reasons. 1967 was a poor vintage and even though the wine may have been well made since it is Latour, it would not be expected to last nearly this long. Any potential buyer would be extremely wary because of the poor vintage and the wine's maturity. They would want to know that it has been stored in perfect cellar conditions. Your best bet if you don't know anyone that wants to buy it is to put it up on a wine auction website like with a reserve of about $25.

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.
