Baghera/Wines Presents Its Upcoming Live Sale: “The Provenance”


Or the art of caring about essentials: Lot 98 Vosne-Romanée Cros Parantoux 2000 – Domaine Henri Jayer (6 Magnums per lot). Estimate: CHF 300,000 to 500,000

Geneva, October 12th 2021 – Never before has the provenance of wines been so relevant and decisive for any collector or informed wine lover. Against this background, Baghera/wines is proposing an exclusive auction for this new autumn chapter. Aptly named “The Provenance”, it will take place on December 5th at the Beau-Rivage in Geneva. Consisting of a single, skilfully accumulated collection, this live sale will offer ultra-rare lots of unique quality with one over-riding common denominator: their provenance, of which the traceability is scrupulously checked from the moment they leave the estates.

With a proud track record of numerous successful sales, Baghera/wines offers once again its audience an immersion into the very heart authenticity. If there were to be one criterion on which lovers of great wines should never compromise, it would undeniably be provenance.

Consumption and purchasing habits for fine wines have changed drastically in the last two years, and it is in this changing world that Baghera/wines has chosen to highlight the age-old criteria of wine conservation and preservation by celebrating them in “The Provenance” sale. Exceptional crus will change hands within this context with a keen regard for the ancestral work of the winemakers who have notably forged the sterling reputation of the Burgundy and Bordeaux Estates.

“As with every sale, the starting point for our work is a simple observation: today, provenance represents the ultimate quality in our business. For this particular sale, we have had the opportunity of bringing together various elements that are the secret ingredients of a perfect collection: firstly, the wishes and personal taste of the consignor, whose character reveals an element of natural intransigence; secondly, a relationship of trust established by the auction house, in this case Baghera/wines; thirdly, a privileged and totally unquestionable source of supply; and lastly, the guarantee of strictly respected preservation. All these elements build an impenetrable fortress: Provenance, the queen of quality when it comes to collecting rare wines”, say Michael Ganne and Julie Carpentier, founders of Baghera/wines and the sale’s auctioneers.
