Domaine Seguinot-Bordet - Chablis Vieilles Vignes 2022


The Seguinot family’s roots in Maligny, the front door to Chablis, can be traced as far back as 1590 when they began to write their history.

Resting on the sloping right bank of the serein river, 16 hectares lie on a perfect south / south-east exposition. Historical site of the birth of Chablis. Rich soils from The Kimmerridgian give our wines their specificity and unique “iodine” character. This maritime origin gives the wines a specific iodine character, genuine and inimitable typicity.

Chablis Vieilles Vignes is very pretty pale golden yellow in colour with light greenish glints. Bright, luminous and limpid. The noze is copious, fresh and expressive. It illustrates its maturity with bright colours, sparkling yellows and shining gold. The taste again reveals its powerful nature, rich, charming and elegant. A harmonious combination of powerful mollowness and tender vivacity. The long mineral finish is a perfect illustration of the wine’s serious yet charming character.

"This also exhibits fine Chablis typicity with its array of green fruit, iodine and wet stone, all of which is set off by just sliced citrus nuances. The old vines are in evidence are there is fine mid-palate density to the medium weight flavors that coat the palate with sappy dry extract that also buffers the slightly firmer acid spine shaping the impressively persistent and quinine-inflected finale. This is also very good for its level. *Top Value!*  - 90 points, Burghound

"The 2022 Chablis Vieilles Vignes comes from 86-year-old vines, and 8% of the fruit is aged in oak, the rest in stainless steel. Tasted blind, it works better than the regular bottling with more delineation and mineralité filtering through the tropical fruit and engendering greater typicité. The palate is fresh on the entry with orange rind and nectarine notes, slightly waxy in texture with a pithy, engaging finish." - 89 points, Vinous
