Le Figaro, the opinion of the wine and the best deals in Saint Emilion

Clos Badon is considered a good value by the site of the Figaro. I purchased Clos Badon in 1998 and changed the name to Clos Badon Thunevin because the name Badon is shared by 3 or 4 winemakers who own vineyards in this particular terroir located under the hillside of Pavie. It was a very old property existing under this name before 1800 and producing consistently very good wines, at the top of the classified wines of Saint Emilion. I always told my friends and my clients that Clos Badon is "the good deal" of our portfolio.

So thank you the Figaro and its tasters: Ian d'Agata, Abi Duhr, Peter Moser, Roger Voss, Bernard Burtschy.

These days, a lot of articles about our wines are coming out: RVF, Gault et Millau, Wine Doctor, as well as in Korea, India ... Thank you.
