anyone know about Petrus Pomerol 1982

Posted by harry kean, Feb 28, 2010.

I was gifted a 750 ml bottle of this 1982 Petrus many years ago. I would like to sell it. The bottle is in good condition. Don't know much about wine and how to sell it and get a fair price for it. Any recommendations.

Well 82 was a brilliant year! If you look on wine searcher you can see the prices quoted from different countries for this wine
It varies from 1700 Euros a bottle up to 4000 Euros. Whoever buys it will probably want to know its provenance, condition etc.
Good luck!

A bit of an understatement by Cathy, since provenance and condition for any aged bottle of fine wine are of supreme importance. Unless you have a pristine-looking bottle, a proven track record regarding wine storage including evidence of just where the bottle has been all the while, you will have extreme difficulty getting full price to that level for the bottle.

It is a very special wine from a very special chateau and a very special vintage. Something that will be very hard to find again once you let it go. If you are at all into wine, or know some close family member or friend who is to share with, and if you can at all afford to do so, I suggest you drink it rather than trying to sell. You are likely to have (and share) an experience of great value to remember for quite some time into the future.

I agree with dmcker. Have you sold wine before? If not, you're not "trustable", since you have no proven track record of good storage conditions. I'd drink it.

Drink it as there are tons of fake bottlings of this wine and God forbid if yours is fake and you sold it
