(JS=92) 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.
(RP=90) The 2015 Mauvais Garcon "Bad Boy" is medium garnet-purple in color with wonderfully pure blackberries and black plums notes with hints of baking spices and smoked meats. Full, rich, spicy, and seductive in the mouth, it has velvety tannins and impressive energy on the finish that makes another glass hard to resist.
(WS=87-90) Bright and breezy, with friendly cherry fruit and silky tannins. Score range: 87-90
(AG=88) 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.
