Geneva, 1 December 2023 – On 15 December, Baghera/wines will hold its last sale of 2023 from Geneva, following Kipling #3 and #4 in Geneva and Kipling #5 in Singapore. Live-streamed by Baghera/wines from Club 1865 on the ground floor of the Beau Rivage Hotel Geneva, the “RED AS SNOW” quarterly sale will feature over 1892 bottles from the cellars of three passionate wine lovers. Once again, Baghera/wines is achieving the feat of auctioning a quality range of bottles with impeccable provenance and traceability. Most of the wines have not altered since they were purchased and in the vast majority of cases, this was done directly from the estates and châteaux. The total value of the sale is estimated at between CHF 1 million and 2 million.
RED AS SNOW – “An enchanting realm of fine wine collections”
A sale like an end-of-year flourish, ready for tasting. The selection of bottles that Baghera/wines has put together for this final sale of the year is like a series of patiently hunted little treasures.
Swiss wines are finally back in the limelight with vintages including Romanée-Conti, Petrus, Rouget and many more sought-after treasures. While Burgundy lovers in search of mature vintages will invariably be captivated by one of the world’s most prestigious estates: Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, an over 25-year-old vertical selection of Clos de Tart will delight the most demanding enlightening connoisseurs. Wines from Domaine Ghislaine Barthod will offer an intriguing alternative, while rare cases of Domaine Duclot Bordeaux will tickle the fancy of even the most discriminating wine lovers, notably the highly sought-after Carré d’As 2000 in large magnum format, accompanied by a few gems from Emmanuel Reynaud.
Michael Ganne and Julie Carpentier, co-founders of Baghera/wines and auctioneers for the sale, comment: “For the end of 2023, the Baghera/wines team of experts and ourselves wanted to bring together a concentrated blend of sweetness and comfort. For us, imagining excellent wines – whose provenance and quality we view as essential qualities – taking pride of place on our customers’ tables or enriching their personal cellars represents the ‘Holy Grail’ of our daily business. The methodical work daily performed by our teams in their pursuit of excellence takes on a whole new meaning here and once again crowns a year of efforts devoted to the quest for rarity, excellence, and the pleasure of shared wine!”
