The Chartreuses Liqueurs Generates Intense Interest

The Chartreuses collection attracted intense interest from buyers due to its quality and the historical character of the 120 bottles. Known as a niche product for well-informed connoisseurs, Chartreuse liqueurs become increasingly important in recent years among lovers of rare spirits, with all the lots offered in “Kingdoms” fetching more than double their conservative estimate.

At the end of the sale, Michael Ganne, Executive Director of Baghera/wines, commented:

“Within the very unusual context of 2020, we are very pleased with ‘Kingdoms’, a resolutely dynamic sale, where the buyers were extremely caught up in the auction, driven by the irreproachable quality of the lots offered. Regardless of the economic context, when rare goods are on the table, passion rules, and there has been no lack of interest and participation by international bidders. During the last few months Baghera/wines has, more than ever, cultivated its ties with its customers. Dematerialized sales have been an opportunity to reconnect with customers in another type of dimension, but always in a spirit of sharing and passion for wine.”
