“Wine is the most infallible of omens because it heralds joy, frank gaiety, happiness at last”
Philippe Aubert de Gaspé (The Canadians of Old)
Romain and I have known each other for a very long time. I can discreetly whisper the number, “19”. Nineteen years during which we have been together at auctions, dinners, tastings organised in Geneva, Lausanne, Burgundy… a certain anthology evening at Romain’s house comes to mind. It was in 2018 and we were just a happy few, sitting around a large table enjoying a horizontal of the 1978 vintage (for our 40th birthdays). Hermitage La Chapelle, Rayas, Mouline & Landonne, Monfortino Conterno, Brunello di Montalcino Soldera, Barolo Giacosa, Nuits-St- Georges “Boudots” Charles Noëllat… What a night!
For Romain is a true enthusiast, a fine connoisseur, an outstanding taster with a genuine curiosity for wines. All wines! From Burgundy to Bordeaux, from Tuscany to California… Thanks to an early passion for great wines, his cellar abounds with treasures, such as I have rarely seen! So it is not without emotion (and gratitude) that the Baghera/wines team has spent the summer preparing the dispersal of part of this cellar, which will be offered to you in two phases this autumn in our rooms at 2 rue Adhémar-Fabri.
Dear friends, we look forward to seeing you on Sunday 16 October for the Kipling #2 sale livestreamed on bagherawines. com and then on Sunday 27 November for other treasures of the French, Italian and international vineyards, fresh from Romain’s cellar for your pleasure.
