'Bad Boy' Making Good Wine

November 21, 2017

Jean-Luc Thunevin is a vineyard owner, brilliant winemaker, astute negociant and a very savvy wine marketer; and YES, finally in 2012, an elite member of the 18 Premiers Grands Crus Class of Saint-Emilion with his now iconic Chateau Valandraud. In the French wine landscape finding good Bordeaux wines is `a dime-a-dozen'. It therefore takes ingenuity, plenty of hard work and definitely some luck to catapult any one single label into the ranks of the best wines in the world. Jean-Luc Thunevin is one of these few noblemen to have achieved this, and he did it literally from scratch. Chateau Valandraud only had its first vintage in 1991 - quite an infancy stage compared to the centuries of legacy many of the fellow illustrious chateaux have.
