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.

I can answer most any question about wine- types, styles, grape varieties, regions, vintages, proper storage, production, wine and food pairing, wine service, decanting, proper glassware, serving temperatures etc. Regarding questions about specific bottles of wine, since I live in the U.S. my focus is on wines imported here. I can't answer questions about spirits and liquor valuations.

Hi Lee,    This NV Champagne is slightly less dry than the more commonplace brut style but I'm afraid your single bottle would be worthless as no merchant or auction house would accept such a small quantity

Hi Thomas     I'm afraid this one may be over the hill.  The Mark Swann wines were originally developed for a large retailer in Australia, and they were never made with long term aging in mind.  My guess

2016-02-09 bordeaux:

Thomas,  It's an undistinguished wine from an historic vintage. It's under the Lurton family umbrella and probably was well made though it sells for around $10. No one would expect it to age that long

Hi Thomas    1982 was a great year in Bordeaux, but Chateau Lamarche is not a great chateau.  In fact, it's not a classified growth, and does not make the list of collectible wines in any vintage.  And

Kathy,    Yes I have heard of this "thief" however I feel that it is a last resort to use, with high quality wines a better way of determining the age are things like colour, level of wine in the bottle
