Hello Snooth!

Posted by Wine Master G, Jan 12.

Came to this website to find values of my red Bordeaux, Sauternes and Champagne collection. I don't think cellartracker is up to date

Welcome! Unfortunately I don't think I can be of much assistance, other than to say that I would expect you to get more helpful feedback from other snoothers. :)

Your question is also a pertinent to me! I went to a small island that is part of France a few months ago. I took the opportunity to buy some bordeaux and burgundy -but it was a blind purchase given my terrible French and lack of research in advance. (Regretful, I know...but it was kind of a "now or never" kind of thing, so I just guessed and grabbed bottles)

As you can imagine, I was more than a little curious to look up some comparative values for the wines I purchased. Needless to say, I was surprised at how precious little I came up with on an online search - CT included. I think that some of the bottles I purchased are based on pretty small scale production...and may not be sold much outside of France....so I figure that contributed to my problem. 

I'm curious to see what feedback other Snoothers might have in response to your question. Good luck! :)

Thanks for your reply, My first wine purchase was blind, bought an '82 Chateau Latour in '83 (at a military base in Spain) for $30, now it's worth $1800 (I still have it) I use bbr.com (vintage charts to help me which years to buy). One bottle I have an ('82 Château Gruaud-Larose), CT says it's value is $179, I've seen it for sale online for $450. Wine-Searcher Pro ($39/yr) is a good place to find average values, that is where I'm going next.
