2009 Mauvais Garçon "Bad Boy" Bordeaux (Pre-Arrival)
93 points Suckling: "Deep and rich, with dark chocolate, blueberries and spices. Full body, with velvety tannins and a long, long finish. Very polished and sexy. Very pretty. Best after 2016." (02/12) 90-93 points Wine Spectator: "Intense coffee bean, toasted bread and concentrated ripe fruit. Full-bodied, with soft and velvety tannins and a medium finish. A juicy wine in a flashy style. This is now called Mauvais Garçon, which means 'bad boy' in French." (04/10) 87-89 points Robert Parker: "Created by Jean-Luc Thunevin, the Bordeaux visionary and well-known “bad boy” of St.-Emilion, this non-vintage, hedonistic offering reveals a super-delicious texture as well as a fat, fleshy, black fruit-dominated personality. It is meant for immediate consumption. Bordeaux needs more wines such as this. (Tasted once.)" (04/10) Note: Futures item. Wine will arrive late 2011 to 2013.
