Identify this bottle...

Posted by cosmoba, Nov 19, 2012.

Hello,

I found a bottle of red wine in my house. It is a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, with no vintage. Trying to figure out how old it is.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

I did upload a photo, but for some reason didn't attach to the post.

Hopefully this one works.

A negotiant wine with little to go on. Not even a listing for this wine in Cellartracker. Vintage label would have been wrapped around the bottle neck. Like on this Meursault?

No real resale value if that's what you were wondering.. If not damaged would probably pair well with Thanksgiving meal. Let us know how it shows.

Hi, thanks for the information.

Around the neck is a label like the Meursault. But all it has on it is V.S.R.

No vintage on the bottle at all. The cork is seal with No. 21-114, the only real number I can find on the bottle.

Thanks again.

WOW.

This wine is a really piece of work, you will need some instructions manual to understand it once you're drinking it haha.

For how long it has been keeped on your cellar? Did you buy it or it was a gift?

This information will totally help us to determine the age of the wine.

Hi,

I bought my grandparents house, and this was in a cabinet. So as for age, I have no real way to determine that. Here are some more pictures, the top and the whole bottle.

Thanks again.
