The idea of calling this cuvée "Bad Boy" came from a nickname that Robert Parker gave to Jean–Luc Thunevin. The American critic regularly called Jean-Luc Thunevin "Bordeaux’s black sheep" or "Saint Emilion’s Bad Boy".

This comic styled label plays a huge part in the wine’s success. It was created by JLT’s friend from many years Eric Soulat.
