Jules Robin - old Bottle

Postby mwc530 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 8:41 pm

This is an unopened bottle of Jules Robin Cognac. I can't seem to find a year it was made on it. I was wondering how much this is worth.

Because of the foil cap style with the crimped top edge and the pre-cut pull band, I am guessing your bottle is from 1945-1950 era. This style capsule was used by Hennessy from 1947 on and by other companies Otard, Frapin, Croizet in the same time period. I haven't seen this type of capsule used on bottles dating back to before WW2. Not a 100% dating method but I think it is a good guess.
Jules Robin was acquired by Martell in 1964 but your bottle is definitely a pre-Martell era bottle.

Thanks for the info Mikethevike. Would anyone happen to know the value of this bottle? I'm no sure whether to enjoy it with a cigar or drink it while watching a football game? I also didn't know if I should expect any interest for an enthusiast to buy this bottle.

The level is too low to really interest a collector. I don't think the cognac is compromised but most collectors would shy away from a 1950 bottle that already has lost so much level. The loss will most probably continue so I would either over-seal the bottle with parafin tape (Google "Parafilm") or drink it :)

I can offer $150 + shipping if you choose to not drink it, but I would STRONGLY suggest you enjoy it with a fine cigar. Football is for beer (unless you mean soccer) in which case a wine spritzer or some foofoo drink with an umbrella and a straw.

I apologize for this delayed post as I lost the link for my post. Thanks to all for your feedback. I still haven't decided what to do with the bottle yet. It looks like it's going to be targeted for one of those special nights.
