Any one now anything about Champagne ?

And not the drinking of it !

I have several bottles of the disgusting stuff, some go back to 1990, now rumour is (from those that drunk it,) was that it had value in un opened state, especially if still in its original box/sleeve, as most of mine do,

so what to do with the bottles? and no, im not selling it on here, for some beer swiggiing moron to get pissed on

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at

Champagne goes off/loses its fizz especially the cheap tesco stuff





I spent a lot of money on booze, birds and fast cars. The rest I just squandered.

Depends on the make , how it's been stored etc. Could be anything from thousands to drain juice.

If it's not from France it's not champagne!

Google it. If it is worth anything you will find references to it on the web. As above it depends upon many factors such as the vintage, the brand and the specific variety. Then add storage history, and condition etc. Worth doing some digging - we discovered a bottle of port in my mates collection was worth 16k!

Unless you have a cellar at the right temperature then it's worth nowt. It needs to be stored horizontal at constant temperature away from bright light. Ideally around 7-10 degrees.

It needs to be from the Champagne region in France to be Champagne. Else it's sparkling wine etc.

Send me clear pictures of the labels and I can give you the current auction values. But as said before storage and condition are vital to value.

Yup, I can vouch for it going off over time. My now father-in-law bought us Champagne from France for our wedding in 2004. At the wedding it was very drinkable, but when I found an unopened bottle in the garage 10 years later it was a lot less pleasant and ended up down the drain.

Personally I'd start by Googling the brand and year for an idea and as said, pay attention to the way it's been stored. Failing that a decent wine shop should be able to offer some advice.

Without a doubt the bottles need to be stored horizontal. If the cork has dried out, then air gains the chance to sneak in and ruin the contents inside.
