Hi David
I wonder if you can help me a friend has given me a bottle la Rioja alta 1975 I great condition could you tell me a valuation on the wine pleats would be very helpful
Regards
Vincent

Answer
Hi Vincent,

This is vrery difficult to value accurately as the '75s have long-since disappeared from merchants shelves so you could only gauge its value for resale via auction, less commission.

But I hope you weren't thinking of selling such a lovely gift as this bottle of 904, which you may not realise is one of the finest Riojas made.

Younger bottles that are available from UK  merchants range in price, according to their maturity, from £30+ to nearly £100, plus VAT.

I suggest you invite your friend to dinner and share it with him/her!

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.
