Jean Guyon owns a group of estates in the northern Médoc village of Bégadan. This wine (blended by a former “best sommelier in the world”) has a high proportion of Merlot. That produces a wine that is smooth and likely to develop easily and quickly. With its touch of tannin, it is balanced and fruity. Drink from 2019.
