A total winner on the value spectrum from Cédric Landié, whose family’s vineyards span over 5 towns throughout Entre-Deux-Mers, in the southern reaches of Bordeaux. Still encompassing a relatively small area, they make wine that is a fantastic value here in the US. With the family formally starting winegrowing in this area in 1970, their innate passion and expertise is evident when hearing Cédric speak about his background and work.
