Bad Boy 2016

- +
$30.98199,81 HRK

Château Valandraud’s garagiste owner, Jean-Luc Thunevin is best know for his stunning Saint-Émilion-Château Valandraud, as well as his successful career as a Bordeaux negociant. Produced from a careful selection of vines from the Right bank, from properties managed or advised by J.L.Thunevin, the BAD BOY is an original cuvée created in 2000. The grapes are harvested and vinified under the constant and careful watch of his 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 Parker’s nickname for Jean-Luc Thunevin as the American critic regularly called “Bordeaux’s black sheep” or “Saint Émilion’s Bad Boy”.

The 2016 Bad Boy is a blend of 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Merlot. It has a fragrant, quite floral bouquet this year with scents of black cherries, incense and a touch of vanilla pod. The palete is medium-bodied with firm tannin, fresh in the mouth with citrus line acidity, slightly granular in texture towards the finish that has good, Médoc –like structure. This is a fine follow-up to the 2015 Bad Boy.
