Baghera/wines an experts office

— Baghera/wines was established at the end of 2015 in Geneva by three passionate experts, who launched a specialized consultancy office exclusively dedicated to exceptional wines. Michael Ganne, Julie Carpentier and Francesco Lee joined forces, offering a new approach to high-end wine auctions, by placing cordiality and sharing at the very heart of the wine business. Since then, Baghera/wines have become the European leading fine wine auctioneer, offering amongst other rarities, the “Private cellar of Domaine Henri Jayer” in June 2018, the world’s most important wine auction ever. Alongside their auctions, the Baghera/wines team guides collectors in every dimension of highlighting a collection, focusing on tailor-made, one-to-one professional advice, outstanding wine sourcing and excellency. In 2019 Baghera/wines opened their office in Hong Kong. In the Spring of 2020, Baghera/wines will be settling at the Hotel Beau-Rivage in Geneva, opening alonsgide its new office, a Fine Wines exclusive Boutique and a private Club.

foreword

“ The unique cellar of a visionary wine collector ” by michael ganne

— “ I have had a most rare vision. I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was… ” William Shakespeare, 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' (1595-6) act 4, sc. 1

— It is with a feeling of immense privilege that we present to you what is surely one of the most magnificent wine cellars in the world. It celebrates rarity and history in a unified assemblage. This distinguished collection reflects the orderly and meticulous character of its collector who through extensive knowledge and exquisite taste has created a treasure trove that rightly can be defined as “visionary”. Many components comprise this evaluation. One is the memory of “first love”. The collector confided that early on he remembers the consummate pleasure of tasting a bottle of La Tâche 1947. I too have tasted this vintage and can concur heartily. Quality, rarity, a taste for the exceptional are factors that guide the epicurean as well as the art collector. This passion and knowledge of forty years of collecting wine has culminated in these unique jewels which are offered to you today. This sale thus presents additionally an impressive array of large formats. Methuselahs and Jeroboams are unquestionably rarities amongst rarities, evanescent, fleeting objects of desire in an ever volatile world. Other impossible-to-find vintages complete the collection, many in original wooden cases. Thirteen Methuselahs or Imperiale format (6 liters), nine Jeroboam formats (4.5 liters), fifty-five Jeroboams or DoubleMagnum formats (3 liters), six hundred and fourteen magnums and one

thousand two hundred and one bottles from the greatest Domaines and Châteaux give the scope of this impressive heritage that we now give you the opportunity to discover. Each bottle offers perfect provenance and traceability, verified invoice by invoice. A large majority of the Bordeaux wines were purchased directly from the official local distributors and picked-up from the châteaux (Cheval Blanc, Haut-Brion, Lafite-Rothschild, Latour, Lynch-Bages, Margaux, Mouton-Rothschild and Pichon Longueville Comtesse). A vast majority of the Domaine de la RomanÊe-Conti wines were purchased directly from the official local distributor. All these measures further insure unquestioned provenance. In Geneva, the wines, in order to gain maturity, have resided in an ideal condition of conservation in an ambience of controlled temperature and humidity. A broad selection of the wooden cases present in the sale have been photographed and appear in a dedicated index at the end of this catalogue. The joy of a wine collection is the ability to share and savor its treasured components with others. And you now have the unprecedented opportunity to perpetuate the pleasures of the senses and inextricable sociability in a collection clearly wrought from love. Warmest regards, Michael

In order to place absentee bids, please use the dedicated form (see opposite) provided in this catalogue. Each bid form should contain the sale number. Please accurately record the lot number and the maximum price in Swiss francs you are willing to pay for each lot (please note that unlimited bids will not be accepted).

If you cannot attend the auction, you can place bids on the telephone. We also recommend that you leave a covering bid which we can execute on your behalf just in case we are unable to reach you by telephone.
As the number of telephone lines are limited please make arrangements for this service at least 48 hours before the sale. Please note that Baghera/ wines only offers telephone bids in French, English, Spanish, German and Chinese.

If you are unable to attend an auction in person, you may give Baghera/wines instructions to bid on your behalf. Our staff members will then try to purchase the lot(s) of your choice for the lower price possible. Please note this service is free, totally confidential and offered as a convenience to clients who are unable to attend the sale. Although our representative will make every effort, Baghera/ wines will not be responsible for error or failure to execute bids.

Your bid form must be placed and sent over to us as soon as possible. In event of identical bids, the earliest received will take precedence. Alternative bids may be indicated by using the word “OR” between lot numbers. As a result, if your bid on early lot is successful, our representative will not continue to bid on other lots on your behalf, or, if your early bids are unsuccessful, we will continue to execute bids for alternative lots until a bid is successful. It is important that your bids are listed in numerical order (as the lot numbers appear in the catalogue).

The maximum bid price that you indicate in your absentee bid form is the hammer price only. If you are successful on a lot, a buyer’s premium of 20% will be added to the hammer price for each lot you buy. An additional VAT tax of 7,7% will be lieved on the hammer price AND buyer’s premium. The buyer’s premium will be the amount stated in the “Conditions of Sale” printed on pages 356–359 of this catalogue. s u cc e s s f u l b i ds
