HISTORY AND PROVENANCE

This time last year, Baghera/wines had the tremendous privilege to auction a collection of over 1,400 bottles of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti wines, the most significant range of DRC offered at auction in the past 2 decades. The “ Master Cellar ” auction on May 22nd 2016 achieved exceptional results and received considerable attention from international buyers and collectors.

Exceptionally, considering the eminence of the collection, the Domaine de la Romanée- Conti had examined every single bottle that was sold. This unprecedented action emanating from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti as concerns bottles offered at auction, corroborated and endorsed Baghera/wines’ initial expertise and methodological approach.

As a continuation of this historical auction, Baghera/wines will be offering on June 6th, 2017 a private collection of 55 lots originating directly from the unprecedented “ Master Cellar ” sale. The wines were all acquired by a private collector during that auction and remained untouched and undisturbed in the Geneva Free Ports underground cellar since purchase in May 2016.
