2015 Mauvais Garçon "Bad Boy" Bordeaux (Previously $16)

SKU #1313859 92 points James Suckling

 A bold and brash style with a wealth of rich blackberries and mulberries. The palate adds chocolate to the mix, and it's all delivered on smooth, ripe and supple tannins. Silky finish. Try from 2021.  (2/2018)

 The 100% Merlot 2015 Bad Boy offers attractive notes of ripe black fruits, hints of herbs and cedar, medium-bodied richness and a fruit-forward, undeniably delicious style. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years.  (11/2017)


 The 2015 Bad Boy is dark, plump and juicy, all qualities that make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next year or two. Super-ripe black cherry, bittersweet chocolate and cloves are pushed forward in this succulent, budget-friendly wine from Jean-Luc Thunevin. (AG)  (2/2018)

Here come the great Right Bank 2015s. This bad boy is bright and lively--a great buy for $15. This 50,000-bottle cuvee of 100% Merlot, coming largely from Fronsac, is fashioned by Jean-Luc Thunevin, the bad boy of St-Emilion. It is a new wave style wine--fresh and spicy with some oak evident. The bad boy refers to Robert Parker they say, not Mr Thunevin.
Drink from 2017 to 2027

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
