Most commonly faked wines.

Brief article about the most commonly faked wines.

Anyone have any of these in their cellar:

quote:
1947 Château Cheval Blanc
“I believe that Serena Sutcliffe, the wine director of Sotheby’s, once said there are more bottles of ’47 Cheval Blanc in the market than were ever produced,” Goldstein remarks of this famous wine from St-Émilion.

1811 Château d’Yquem
This legendary Sauternes “wasn’t in the market until the 1970s. In fact, the 1811 was nonexistent until Rodenstock ‘rediscovered’ it,” says Goldstein.

1924 Château Mouton Rothschild
This was the first year that Mouton estate-bottled its wines; any supposedly estate-bottled wines from before this vintage are undeniably fake, says Goldstein.

1921 Château Pétrus
Pétrus (especially in a magnum) is a favorite of fraudsters. Goldstein has seen all kinds of fake Pétrus, including bottles with capsules the wrong color and labels made from artificially aged paper.

1952 Domaine de la Romanée-Conti La Tâche
“We’re seeing more and more fake DRCs,” Goldstein says of this great grand cru domaine. It’s “the favorite Burgundy property” for counterfeiters, he says.

This is interesting....I had the 1811 Yquem last year and was quite skeptical of its authenticity....provenance was as good as you can get with a bottle of this age but I still had questions

Big Grin .....fair enough Jeff
like I said.....broadbent
But that still does not answer my questions either.
Those may be the most commonly faked wines in the cellars of collectors like Bill Koch, but there aren't that many collectors of that caliber. I bet that there are other wines that are much less rare than this group which are more commonly, and probably more easily faked. Wines that go for enough $$ to be worth counterfeiting that aren't quite as high profile as this group.
