Bordeaux Winemaker Jean Luc Thunevin is visiting Manila to host a Wine Story Masterclass on March 16, 2015 at 7 p.m. The class will be held at Wine Story Serendra and feature the “bad boy” himself, Jean-Luc Thunevin as he guides participants through his flagship wine, Chateau Valandraud, and its second label, Virginie de Valandraud.
Thunevin calls himself a “modern winemaker” for going against the grain with many of his winemaking decisions. Since his first vintage in 1991, he has favored small batches of extracted wine, created from low yields and aged in new oak barrels. His methods were uncommon in Bordeaux at the time, yet even his early vintages were superb. His unconventional methods earned him both high scores from wine critics and the nickname “Bad Boy” from the influential Robert Parker.
