Would you be happy to share your data so that we can merge our two datasets together and then link them to the TN threads?
No problem - if you can match it your own lists and let me have the ones I've missed, that would be appreciated!
I understand Alex's concerns entirely, and suggest we deal with them by inserting reference entries into the list:
For example, the listing for Passadouro might run:
Passadouro 1992 - 2001 - See Niepoort Passadouro
Passadouro 2003 - See Niepoort Secundum
I use some fairly complex systems for computing and updating prices. I am also pretty brutal in my valuation of young vintage ports from houses of little note - for example Borges 2003 currently stands at Â£7.33/bottle, fair value (I think) - but well below the trade price Borges would expect!
I could assign letters to each wine, ranging from A (Under Â£8) to W (Â£130-Â£150) with X reserved for values over Â£150. All prices being current auction prices for sound bottles, inclusive of buyer's premium. The value of each price band could then be adjusted each year to reflect market moves.
Over time, some edits to the band allocations would need to be made, but this should not prove too onerous.
Incidentally, the value of bottles worth more than Â£150 is quite hard to set, as they do not come to auction very often, fluctuate widely, and often have significant condition issues.
