Wine/1928 J. lacerise champagne epernay extra brut

Question
found an old bottle of champagne in my in laws basement in Connecticut. Was wondering if it is any good at that age? Also if it is of some value. Was unable to find anything with the name Lacerise.

Answer
Hi J,

It is extremely unlikely that any Champagne will have survived this long so I wouldn't hold out much hope of pleasure if you were to open it, even though it is from an excellent vintage.

It would only be lawful for you to offer this for sale via a licenced merchant or auction house but I can see no possibility of one accepting a single bottle of this age so I'm afraid this is effectively worthless.

Sorry!

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.
