Red Wine

Wine Spectator Notes : Offers direct plum and cassis notes, with a light twinge of vanilla on the finish. Score range: 87-90

Tasting Notes : 80% merlot 10% cabernet Franc 5% cabernet sauvignon, 5% petit verdot with vines at least 50 years old in a great terroir of clayey limestone mainly. Jean-Luc Thunevin thought of creating this cuvee when the Vin de Pays de France appellation was launched. The Bad Boy 2014 has a sweet, candied bouquet with honey infusing the crème de cassis and blueberry jam scents. The palate is full-bodied with thick, slightly chewy tannin, a rather brawny and heady “Bad Boy” with a punchy, fruit-laden finish. Good value and just the ticket for someone looking for something big ‘n' bad to partner with their barbecue.
