A red and sparkling wine from Bordeaux with the stylish WINECHILL in a gift box.
Jean-Luc Thunevin from the Saint Emilion region has turned the wine world upside down as the proprietor of Chateau Valandraud. He started the ‘garage wine’ movement; wines made in small quantities with enormous concentration and power, and in Thunevin’s case literally in the garage of his house. These wines usually have an explosive, forward taste with extremely concentrated fruit, yet are made to drink soon rather than cellar for longer periods of time. World famous wine critic Robert Parker gave Thunevin his nickname Bad Boy of Saint Emilion.
Bad Boy is a fruity wine with flavours of blackcurrant, cherries and chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky, making the 2011 Bad Boy a nicely balanced wine. A wine you can drink young, as it has been made to be enjoyed now!
After the success of Bad Boy, he has created Bad Girl, a Crémant de Bordeaux. A well-structured and tasty sparkling white wine made of the classical grapes Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, as well as a little dose of Cabernet Franc, a grape known to give longevity to reds. Thunevin has hired the best winemakers in the field to make this outstanding wine. This wine attracts a female clientele who love to drink bubbles as part of a life style, but it also competes with serious Champagnes. Take this to a dinner party and don’t tell people it’s Bordeaux until they have tasted it!
