Domaine Seguinot Bordet is a fantastic Chablis Domaine situated in the pretty village of Maligny. The estate now consists of 16 hectares situated on the right bank of the river Serein and is overseen by Jean-François Bordet who’s family have run the estate since 1590. In that time the family have perfected the unique unoaked style of Chardonnay which Chablis is famed for. Surprisingly the Domaine has travelled under the radar for years but is just starting to garner the recognition it richly deserves. “These wines are worth getting to know” agrees Neal Martin, erobertparker.com
The majority of the vineyards possess an ideal south-east exposition, with vines up to 106 years old, possibly the oldest of the region. The unusual horizontal fermentation tanks give the wines more lees contact during maturation, subtly adding to the complexity and richness of the wines without the impact of batonnage.
The Chablis is crisp, pure and mineral, with lovely texture and balance. Beautiful scented peach and apricots flavours sit behind the fresh apple and floral notes. The wine has fantastic vigour and is the perfect accompaniment to Scottish shellfish.
