Question
Louise Roederer Reims Champagne
Louise Roederer Reims  
Hello,
My husband purchased a bottle of Champagne at an Estate Sale and we are having a hard time finding and dating the bottle. I have attached a photo but it's a little hard to see. The bottle is full and the foil around the neck is in good condition. There is no back label and the front label has no date on it. In very small print under the name is the following (N.M. 3 642 242) states Produce of France Diversified imports corp Seattle Washington. Any help in dating and value would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you,
Laura

Answer
Laura,

It is very difficult to date accurately Champagne that has no year date on the bottle/label, looking at the picture that type of label has been in use since the 1970s, so I don't think it is earlier than that.

As to value, if the level of liquid is good then it could have an auction value of $30/40 no more.

Kind regards,
