Bad Boy (Mauvais Garçon ), Saint-Emillion 2016
The Bad Boy is an original cuvée created by the illustrious Jean-Luc Thunevin in the 2000s. Produced from a careful selection of wines on the right bank, from properties managed or advised by Jean-Luc Thunevin. The grapes are harvested and vinified under the constant, careful, and meticulous watch of Thunevin's well-established winemaking team. The name for this cuvée came by way of American critic, Robert Parker, who often referred to Jean-Luc as Bordeaux's "black sheep" or "Saint Emillion's Bad Boy." Thunevin rose to prominence during the Right Bank garagiste movement of the 90s with the rise of his garage produced Chateau Valandraud. Jean-Luc produces the Bad Boy Cuvee with the same passion and creativity that helped him establish one of the biggest cult wines from Bordeaux's right bank.
