Re: How can I sell an expensive bottle of wine?

I got an expensive bottle of wine from one of my client a while ago. Now I realized I never gonna drink it and better to sell it. But how can I do it?
I found some wine marketplace wineroo.ch, but didn't see prices more than 400$ there and mine is around 4k-5k$ rather. Any advice what is the best way sell wine?
If you have the receipt you can return it.

Also check if you could be liable to tax when selling?

No tax on previously owned stuff.

Not necessarily. Firstly, he was comparing Pomerol to Saint-Emillion. And then, in practice, even in this comparison, I doubt that a lot of people can feel that clay soil component and distinguish between similar wines.
Personally, I think clay is over rated. It tends to overwhelm granite or schist gravel and splatter itself all over the place

Just to clarify, I have not had the opportunity to try Petrus, I am recounting what I believe is 'common knowledge'. It does, however, make sense, considering the very unique terroir, plus the fact that Petrus is 100% merlot, which is not that common in Pomerol. (There are others, but not many)


Only one way to find out for sure!!!
Interesting timing to get an email about en primeur La Mondotte, St. Emillion this afternoon, with the following comment.

La Mondotte is a tiny 4.5 hectare vineyard located just east of the St-Emilion limestone plateau between Troplong Mondot and Tertre-Rôteboeuf. It is owned by Count Stefan von Neipper. La Mondotte's clay-rich soils and the almost perfect aspect of the steep vineyards produce super-ripe Merlot grapes and a smaller proportion of Cabernet Franc grapes.

Considering that 5 out of 9 of my total 'groans' came from Jamon8 (in one thread), I would say that I might be a bit biased as to who is right and who is wrong! (No hard feelings!)
Sometimes, I’m using optionality of this forum quite intensively Actually, I wanted to remove groans in that thread since you admitted you were wrong but was too late. Thanked you 5 times in this thread

I find the idea to gift something with receipt quite weird, though for sure very Swiss.

No worries! I always try to clarify when I’m accounting my understanding as opposed to my experience, like the difference between Petrus and St. Emillion!

One day it will be experience with Petrus!
