Notes

95 % Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc

An original cuvée created by Jean-Luc Thunevin in the 2000’s. Produced from a careful selection of wines from the right bank, from properties managed or advised by Jean-Luc Thunevin. The grapes are harvested and vinified under the constant and careful watch of our team in order to bottle one of the best Bordeaux reds.

The idea of calling this cuvée 'Bad Boy' (or Mauvais Garçon) came from Robert Parler’s nickname for Jean –Luc Thunevin as the American critic regularly called Chäteau Valandraud’s garagiste owner 'Bordeaux’s black sheep' or 'Saint Emilion’s Bad Boy' The comics styled label is a creation of our printer and faithful friend Eric Soulat which played a huge part in the success of this cuvée.

Tasting notes:
'The 2015 Mauvais Garcon ("Bad Boy") is medium garnet-purple in color with wonderfully pure blackberries and black plums notes with hints of baking spices and smoked meats. Full, rich, spicy and seductive in the mouth, it has velvety tannins and impressive energy on the finish that makes another glass hard to resist.' – Wine Advocate, 90/100
