855 bottles of Henri Jayer + 209 magnums of Henri Jayer – too good to be true – actually not.
The daughters of Henri Jayer – Lydie and Dominique Jayer – have put the remaining wine collection of the former Henri Jayer estate on auction in Geneva.
The auction is held by Baghera/Wines who have worked intensely for several years to set up this auction.
All the wines comes prepared with new labels and capsules from the estate – with the bottles made ready for auction by Emmanuel Rouget and the Jayer family.
Provenance does not come better than this …

Impressive dedication and respect to the history and wines of the Jayer family and estate.
The auction will be held on June 17th 2018 in Geneva.
The auction catalogue
The auction catalogue was just released and show all the magnificent wines, and some lovely historical photos and informations about the Jayer estate and the legendary Henri Jayer.
Provenance and Jayer
In my view this auction is the best and maybe one of the last chances of finding Jayer wines with a perfect provenance.
I see so many fake Jayer wines being sold, tasted and adverticed – actually me feeling is that most Jayer bottles today are fakes … sadly.
I would expect the prices here will reflect the fact that the wines have the perfect provenance – and I do feel happy to see that the buyers get what they see on the labels, and that the Jayer family get the revenue – and not some dubious dealer or merchand.
