Answer
Hi Christopher,

It's difficult to estimate the value of Champagnes of such age without knowing that the bottles are perfect in terms of colour, level, lable and capsule and that they have always been stored lying down in a cool dark place. So I suggest you ask J Straker Chadwick's (http://www.strakerchadwick.co.uk/) to arrange for one of their appraisers to call by appointment next time they have anyone in your area.

They may not see as much value in the others but the '90 DP could fetch bids over over £150 if the bottle is pristine.

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.
