  • Winemaker Notes The Seguinot family’s roots can be traced as far back as 1590 in the Chablis district, the northernmost area of the Burgundy region. At Domaine Seguinot Bordet, they provide the utmost care their densely planted vines, all the while respecting nature’s harmony and the organic balance of the seasons. They make their own selection of vine plants when they need to be replanted but the oldest are already as old as their ancestors. The rich soils from the Kimmerridgian origin gives our wines a specific iodine character, genuine and inimitable typicity.
  • Tasting Notes Very pretty pale golden yellow in color with light greenish glints. Bright, luminous and limpid. The nose is an explosion of fine fresh notes, of elegant white flowers, fresh brioche and leafy tenderness. The taste reveals instantly all its power, richness and elegance-perfect balance of finess, mineral, mellowness and vivacity. It generously offers us a full spectrum of aromas. The finish just goes on and on, never to the forgotten.
  • Vineyard The vineyards, situated predominately around the village of Chablis, are dedicated almost exclusively to the Chardonnay grape and planted on soils of Kimmeridgian limestone with outcrops of chalk. The cool climate of this region produces wines that are naturally high in acidity with a taught, lean structure, especially when compared to the relatively lush and rich Chardonnay wines produced in the more southerly districts of Burgundy. The flavors are less rich and fruity than Chardonnay wines grown in warmer climates, often presenting characteristics described “flinty” or “steely” and laced with minerality.
  • Vinification According to the domaine's own special quality charter.
