Baghera Wines is hosting a singular wine auction on May 22 in Geneva. The auction will include 1,407 bottles of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti and 3,000 bottles of the finest Bordeaux. It’s a collection that is sure to have even the most jaded of wine appreciators champing at the bit to purchase!

Executive director of Baghera Wine, Michael Ganne, says that this auction is the most significant of the last 20 years to take place on continental Europe.

The historic occasion will see 266 lots – or 1,407 bottles – auctioned to prospective buyers who’ll be eager to get their hands on millésimes from as far back as 1966. Bidding will begin at CHF1,600 (approx. €1,450) for a bottle of La Tâche 1966, while a lot of twelve bottles of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti 1988 comes with an estimated price tag of CHF120,000 (approx. €109,000).

The high-end Bordeaux wines are surely the pinnacle of the auction: a Château Yquem collection from 1848 to 1976 will be available, while a bottle of Yquem 1848 will be included with an estimate of CHF15,000 (approx. €13,600). The auction will also see huge Bordeaux names including Lafite-Rothschild (1966), Margaux (1990), Mouton-Rothschild (1982, 2000), Haut-Brion (1945, 1989), Cheval-Blanc (1947), Ausone (1996) and Pétrus (2000) go under the hammer.
There will be a total of 612 lots, with an estimate of CHF6-9 million (approx. €5,500,000). It’s a wine connoisseur’s dream come true.
