Baghera Wines was founded in 2015 by three passionate experts who acquired their credentials at Christie’s and chose to create a Geneva-based consulting company to offer « inspired and remarkable auctions to their clientele and to reestablish the spirit of merriment, pleasure and conviviality at the heart of the universe of outstanding wines ».
Michael Ganne, Julie Carpentier and Emmanuel Mercé teamed up with a view to provide high-level, comprehensive guidance and consulting on fine wines, as well as tailored services to help build up, enhance and magnify their clientele’s wine collections.
Great Burgundy wines…
This will be the largest, most comprehensive sale ever held in Europe around great Burgundy wines, among the most wanted in the world: no less than 600 lots together with 60 Burgundy producers from the most exclusive domains, amongst which Henri Jayer and Romanée-Conti, Coche-Dury, Leroy and Liger-Belair will be presented.
