Jancis Robinson "Lovely bright citrus note, even a touch of lime – something almost Riesling-like about the aroma. More mineral on the palate but still with good fruit depth. Almost approachable but there is so much intensity here for the appellation and the price." (2014 vintage)
The Seguinot family’s history in Maligny, the front door to Chablis, can be traced to 1590. Unlike most other vineyards in the region, Domaine Seguinot-Bordet also has a site in Fourchaume, widely regarded as the finest of the premier cru vineyards. It is effectively a northwards continuation of the seven grand cru vineyards.
The winery practises coolish fermentation and allows wines to mature for 3-5 months on their lees; this maximises the contact and promotes a luscious style to the wines.
Maligny is the historical site of the birth of Chablis. Rich soils from The Kimmerridgian give wines their specificity and unique “iodine” character. This maritime origin gives to wines a specific iodine character, genuine and inimitable typicity.
Chablis is an historic wine-producing town and region in northern central France. It produces light, dry, white wines famed for their flinty minerality and crisp acidity. AOC Chablis wines are produced exclusively from the Chardonnay grape variety.
