Hello, I am new to this forum and I just have a question, if some one would be so nice as to answer me I would greatly appreciate it. I have a bottle of 1972
De Luze Pinot Chardonnay
Appelation Macon Villages
which was distributed by A. de Luze and Fils.
It was impoted by some company in Miami Florida, however I cannot see which one because the label is torn slightly. I just would like to know if it is worth anything on the collectors market. Thank You in advance.

Welcome to the WineBoard, anna. Sorry to say it's not worth anything, and it's not even drinkable. DeLuze generally has made journeyman wines for way over a hundred years. They buy excess grapes and/or wine from others and bottle them under their own label. Their wines are good, but not exceptional, and not collectible. I have a bottle each of their Bordeaux from 1898 and 1900, and they're no more than conversation pieces - not worth anything.
