Wine/Early 1900 veuve clicquot and 1928 Pol Roger

Question
Hello David,
I have a non vintage veuve clicquot that after a few years of researching, may be as old as pre 1910. It is in excellent condition with almost no evaporation, perfect label, great foil and very good clarity with iridescent sediment. Do you have any advice on how to sell or learn more about this bottle? I can send you photos of you are interested.
The label does not have any import information, which I believe makes it a pre-prohibition bottle.
I also have a 1928 Pol Roger in excellent condition.

Both bottles are 375 ml.

I live in Montana.

Thank you for the interest

Answer
Hi Forrest,

Champagnes of the age you suspect could create collector interest at auction but don't set your hopes too high as half bottles aren't as desirable as larger formats.

I can't comment further without sight of both bottles so do please send me high-definition photos and I'll try to help.

The photo facility here isn't very good so please upload them to Dropbox, Flickr, OneDrive or whatever is easiest and come back with a link.

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.
