Perfect provenance of any valuable object increases desirability. This applies to wine as much, and maybe even more, as it does to any artwork or object. For wine, this detailed history is the only available link for the buyer to establish a correct period of proper storage for that specific case of wine – whether long or short in time span. Remember, once a wine is spoiled through poor storage it can never recover!
When you buy any wine at auction you are taking a risk that the wine has been carefully handled by the original owner(s).
