BACCHUS & TOBACCOS
FINE AND RARE WINES
An Incredible Private Collection of Vintage Cognac, Whisky and Cigars
At Auction at Christie’s Geneva on 13&14 November
Geneva – This November, Christie's Fine and Rare Wines auction will not only feature a fabulous range of great wines, but will also boast a separate catalogue dedicated to an incredible private collection of vintage Cognac, Whisky and Cigars. Highlighted by a sensational bottle of Grande Fine Champagne made by Saulnier Frères in 1789 – the year of the French Revolution (illustrated above), this special sale of 249 lots will take place on the morning of the 13 November at Christie’s Geneva. On the following day some 870 lots of fine and rare wines, including a superb collection from the Private Cellar of Henri Jayer will also be offered at auction. The two day sales are expected to realise a combined total in excess of SFr.3 million.
Michael Ganne, Head of the Sale: “What a great vintage to start a Cognac collection with, the historical and extremely rare 1789 – the year of the French Revolution. Cognac will play an important role at Christie’s November sales in Geneva alongside rare spirits, fine wines and, offered at auction in Switzerland for the first time in many years, cigars. Furthermore we are delighted to present a superb wine collection from the private Cellar of Henri Jayer. It is an immense honour to bring to auction one of his more iconic wines – The Richebourg 1978. This is a unique chance to buy this wine with such perfect provenance and condition”.
