I read plenty here about buying wine, but I'd like some direction as to how to sell some.
I have six bottles of a chateau bottled Margaux (details below) which according to web searches might be worth trying to sell.
I don't drink red wine and no-one I know could tell the difference between one or another.
CHATEAU MONGRAVEY MARGAUX.
CRU BOURGEOIS 2005.
Any ideas?

    If you don't drink much wine there is a good chance it hasn't been stored at a stable and correct temperature and humidity so there is a good chance it might not have aged well.

    I had a similar issue with a case of 6 bottles of Bollinger Grande Annee 1990 Champagne. But I wasn't sure what the comeback would be if someone opened one and found they had bought half a dozen bottle of vinegar. So I decided to drink them instead with friends on new year 2010 (with back up bottles "just in case") and it was magnificent which was both great from an enjoyment perspective, but awful from a financial one! :smiley:

    Get a specialist wine merchant or auction house to value it.

    Until two years ago it was stored in the cellar of the person who bought it "new".
    Since then it's been in my garage where the temperature varies.
    I'm not clear how humidity could affect it though.
