Historic building Clos Badon was built in Saint-Emilion in 1900. In 1998 the estate was bought by Mr. Tyunevanom and since then the wine "Clos Badon" produced by the same winemakers as Chateau Valandraud. Along with Jean-Luc and his wife Muriel live exotic Chinese Chickens as pets, which are considered full members of the family, so it is not surprising that the label of wine Clos Badon Thunevin shows exactly this bird. When Muriel asked how their hens could live up to such a ripe old age, she replied: "These chickens drink only Bordeaux wines, in particular, the wine Château Valandraud!". Specifically, that the chickens have good taste, just between Clos Badon Thunevin and Chateau Valandraud they prefer the former.
Critics, despite the recognition of the quality and originality of wine Chateau Valandraud, some annoyed by the fact that Jean-Luc Tyunevan easily violated Bordeaux winemaking tradition - his fault just do not fit standard to Bordeaux. Nevertheless, the commercial success of a family business that stands out attentiveness to detail speaks for itself.
