In tonight's episode they had a guy come in with a bottle of 1921 Dom (first vintage ever released). The bottle had been obviously terribly stored (in a liquor cabinet, standing up, etc). They had a local "specialist" come give his 2 cents. He said the bottle, in pristine condition, was worth about $8,200, however, not worth more than $1,000 in its current condition (the exterior was excellent, but the ullage was low, and their was sediment floating around all over, clearly bad wine).

Anyone catch the episode? What'd you think?

I think it would fetch more than $1,000...

I just saw a rerun of this one again. 1k sounds a bit steep to me for show piece. Then again it would seem to be a shrinking supply.

Not being a person of means I'd be a buyer in the $200-300 range.

I think one thing going against it is that DomP is DomP and not something new and exciting. Most of the conversations I've seen on the boards DomP is usually mentioned as as after thought or in the 5-10 range of a top 10 list.

Depends the vintage. While I agree that when I think of great Champagne houses the likes of Krug, Salon and Philipponnat come first to mind. However, I've had bottles of Dom that were stunning.

The best I've ever tasted, of Dom, was the '64 followed by the '78. Both graciously opened by DoktaP. The bottle described by the OP above: I wouldn't pay for a bottle like that.
