Dear Readers--

2020 Chateau Les Sept Chenes Bordeaux 

(60% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon)

Les Sept Chenes is the product of 3 generations of winemaking. 

This stunning little value is produced by the Landie family across half a dozen villages in the bucolic rolling hills of the Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux. 

Entre-Deux-Mers basically means “between two rivers”. Following the Gironde River from the South from its Atlantic estuary, it splits into two: the Garonne to the West and to Dordogne to the East—and between these two rivers exists a bastion of rolling hillsides that produce a variety of wines, but especially a considerable volume of acceptable, generally very ordinary white wine. 

Les Sept Chenes is a true diamond in the rough. 

Cedric Landie is at the helm of this family operation and it’s clear that his dedication to farming, sustainability, and the local terroir has really paid off. 

This bottling is cold-macerated prior to fermentation, and fermentation lasts 10-12 days. Its taste and feel implies a small, thoughtful incorporation of new French oak in perfect proportion to this wine’s subtle grit and structure. 

Candidly, this is pretty serious wine for the money. Not fancy, though honest, well-made and delicious. 

It’s Bordeaux season, and if you’re like me, it might be useful to have some bottles around the house for those casual/spontaneous moments that demand red wine. 

This is just as equally equipped to partner up with a steak, a good burger, and lamb. 

Happy Friday. 

Codey Foster, Wine Director 

My notes read: A petite Bordeaux that seriously overdelivers. When Mitch and I first tasted Les Sept Chenes, we looked at each other and pretty much said 'wow--this stuff is really good'. Lets be candid here: average Bordeaux in this price range can be thin and lacking but this packs a punch and carries all the classy hallmarks of true claret: bright brambly black fruit that is layered and dynamic accompanied by and enticing dusting of dry earth, and a whisper of baking spices, vanilla tea, and fresh crunchy herbs. 12%

Regular: $13.99

Sale: $11.99

6 Bottles: $10.99

12 Bottles: $9.99
