A tasting journey…
Every day, the teams at Baghera/wines, whether in Geneva, Hong Kong, Singapore, or even in Nuits-Saint-Georges, come together, interact, assess, and of course, taste (let's not forget this essential aspect!) alongside enthusiasts from all over the world. They share their collections and the passion that drives them to compose their cellars year after year.
Just like a child growing up and marveling at what surrounds him, the collector becomes enamored with a region, exploring it and becoming familiar with the subtleties of the soils, grape varieties, and the vintners who shape that part of the world. Then comes the desire to explore other horizons, to discover what other regions have to offer. It's a true journey of a taster, punctuated by tastings and a deepening understanding of the elements that make up these geographical areas.
What is exciting and perpetually fuels the motivation of those who form these collections is ultimately not just the wine but everything that surrounds this extraordinary nectar, cherished by people for thousands of years.
It's not just the wine…
The sale on September 28, 2023, in Singapore, is the next chapter in these stories at Baghera/wines. As you can see through the photos of the lots in this sale, the colors, their levels, and, of course, their origins (often directly linked to importers or even wineries) are truly remarkable. Collectors have taken almost medical care to preserve their wines.
Even though they aspire to explore other regions and free up some space in their cellars, they nonetheless show respect for the work done by the skilled hands of the women and men who have invested their energy, passion, and talent for the pleasure of our taste buds and our moments shared with our loved ones.
