hello, can anybody please tell me more about two bottles of wine I have La-Fourvieille 1976 and caves maxim's de paris Sauternes any information about these wines would be much appreciated

This is not a front-running house, maybe a B or C winery. I believe 30+ years may be over the top for this house. The only way to know is to pull a cork.

thank you for your reply. Is it worth just keeping them or is there any value in selling them.

Hi Treet and add mywelcome to the board. As the mighty Dr. stated these are not collectible houses therefore there isn't any value and the wine is probably long-dead soldiers. Sorry. WW

Speaking of 1976, does anyone know if Joseph Heitz Martha's Vineyard 1976 Cabernet is still good and if so, does it have collectible value?

I don't know if it is still good and if it is to be storage has got to be perfect (in temperature and humidity controlled space). JJBuckley's has it listed for $199 a bottle but again, storage will be a big difference.
