    Hi, I was given a few bottles of wine and one of them is a 1988 Chateau Latour. If looked it up correctly, its a $500 bottle of wine. My question is, how can you tell if the wine is still good and secondly, if I wanted to sell it, whats the best way to sell it?

    Howard related because Beth drinks $500 dollar bottles of wine.

    World-Class Bordeaux. If the bottles have been stored properly, you should be good to go - enjoy a rare treat with friends and family!! If not, well, you didn't pay anything for the wine. Once uncorked, you'll know very quickly if the bottles have been stored correctly.

    I will look into it, though. Thanks for the tip :D

    Buy a gallon of this, pour a glass. Open your '$500' bottle and pour a glass. Drink both. If you can tell the difference and prefer the '$500' bottle then drink it.
    Refill the '$500' bottle with the Rossi and sell it. Advertise it as the 'vintners reserve' and put some dust on the bottle.
    I guarantee you 99% of the potential buyers won't know the difference.
