I visited a local Pennsylvania wine store on monday with a vino friend and saw a bottle of 2003 Chateau Latour priced at $254USD. I quickly grabbed thinking that it is a great bargin. When I turned the bottle and looked at the back label and the on the top of the sealed cap, it says 2004 (PA wine store sells the 2004 at $254USD), but the front clearly says 2003 with no double labeling. I asked the sales rep on the floor, and they dont seem to know much or care much, and said $254usd is the price for this wine. I did not buy the wine but I was thinking, what are the chances of Chateau Latour putting the wrong vintage label on front and the correct one on the back and on the sealed cap? Also, i would not thinking that the state run store will sell fake wine either, am I right?

Is this the rare bottle with the labels switched that collectors are paying 1/2-a-mill for? The elusive '03/'04 Latour bottle, only spoken about with hushed reverence? Yes Indybob...the "Inverted Jenny" of wine bottles!

What was the addy of that store again?!!
