Meet the Winemaker (Episode 92): Jean Luc Thunevin, Château Valandraud

Debra meets Jean-Luc Thunevin of Château Valandraud the so-called “Bad Boy of Bordeaux” as nicknamed by Robert Parker (because he disturbed the ordered nature of Bordeaux with his “garagistes” wines!). He explains that he’ll always be Garagist – the term claimed by Robert Parker, Clive Coates and Michel Bettane – despite the garage being a little bigger these days, and that although the prices of his wines will not continue to increase exponentially as they have done, they’ll remain high – because that is what he, the winemaker and owner wants! They also discuss his sub labels and Jean Luc, signs off with the ultimate compliment to Debra.
