enjoywine . . . just curious what your asking price is for these -- guessing in the low-mid thousands range. I would offer a trade for some other wines, but given your note I'm guessing you're looking for cash offers.

I had more like $3500/bottle + ship/handling charges. This is a very fair price. Sorry for the late reply, been traveling.

I am going by the lowest price on wine searcher & then some. I am on the East Coast.. (New England).. where are you?

Genuine curiosity here, all of you folks that are interested and making offers, you really have no issue offering a random person, with no history, nobody vouching for them, etc., $2700+ for an often-forged bottle of wine?

I can see taking a flyer on a $50 bottle of whatever Cali cab, or even something more expensive that isn't so regularly forged, but this is a hell of a stretch.

Anyway, I'm selling some underwater property in the Bahamas, so leave your email and I'll reach out. Heck, if we can make a deal, I'll throw in a bottle of petrus! Any vintage you want!

I'm not really interested in the wine, Jorge, but ever since my close friend, the Nigerian Prince who just discovered how to access his bank account, told me that my cheque is in the mail, I've been thinking of recreational property in the Bahamas, and underwater sounds like it would fit the bill perfectly. How big is the property? Would it be suitable for a family of four now that the children have developed gills?

This could work out well for everyone.

I would make an offer for this, but I am waiting for my winnings to come to me from the British Lottery that I was told I won.

I sent them money to cover the transaction and wiring fees awhile back, but I am still waiting...

i can understand the skepticism of posting a high value wine/ wines, on any forum being new. I am trying to do a legitimate transaction. Does not help when the posts do not appear right away since i am a new memebr. Looks to me like some of you have been scammed on these (this site?) sites, which makes me kinda uncomfortable as well. I am in New England.. i'd prefer a local transaction if it came to that so i could transact face to face. I have hesitated to reply to anyone's email on here directly as of yet, as i am first looking for a fair, straightforward price. The moderators here hold posts for 24hrs or more (for new posters like myself - understandable); not sure when the restriction comes off.

Anyway, $3500/bottle. I have 2 of them. Looking for starightforward transaction. Honest buyer, honest seller.. simple as that.

Nope. Just common sense. If someone you've never met offered to sell you a work of art by Picasso, and just said, "yeah. it's real. why wouldn't it be?", wouldn't you take a moment before saying "ok! take my money!"?

It's just common sense.

These wines are often forged, and worse, provenance is always a doubt. A random person comes along and says "I'm selling a couple for $3500!", it's only healthy to question, and doubt, the seller.

Absolutely healthy to question, no doubt & you make good point. So,on my end.. i have had these in my possession since 2004 & they have been in our Eurocave. Both say right on the label - 'Dreyfus Ashby & CO, New York, NY' assuming they were imported into the U.S before our purchase. Do these forums allow pics? I'd be happy to take some & post as well. I am not in the 'selling' (of wine) business usually.. but, (as i've mentioned).. this year, some important priorities to take care of.

It's funny, but just last week I saw a M*A*S*H episode that had Major Winchester hooking up with a French babe. He came into her tent holding a bottle of wine. He claimed it to be a Petrus. I don't remember her challenging his honesty.


I know, this post has nothing to do with what's going on here. I just thought it was funny to have a Petrus reference in a M*A*S*H episode.

Apparently PersonalWino has 6400 references.

WTF??? Random guy selling expensive wine for cash only asking for references? I don't make a habit of flaming, but this one is special.
