Domaine Séguinot-Bordet dates from 1590 and is now managed by the young Jean-François Bordet who has recently taken over from his grandfather Roger Séguinot. Most of the 16 hectares of vineyards are located on the right bank of the serein river benefiting from a perfect south / south-east exposition. Jean-François Bordet practises coolish fermentation and allows his wines to mature for 3-5 months on their lees; this maximises the contact and promotes a luscious style to the wines. His approach is clearly contemporary, but it delivers very stylish wines which fully express both the fruit and terroir.
The 2017 Petit Chablis has a pretty green apple and wet limestone scented bouquet that is both clean and pure. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, joyous and vibrant green apples mixed with citrus fruit and a poised finish. A great Petit Chablis! Neal Martin
Clean, crisp, flavoursome, and lovely to chuff down. Well, that's pretty much what I want in a Petit Chablis, and this delivers. Aside that, a bit of brine and fresh cut fennel, citrus and green apple, requisite flinty feels, and a finish that's not wanting. Yum. Can be served with a high chill, or not. Alcohol: 12.5%; Price: $40.00; Drink: 2018 - 2023+; Closure: Screwcap; Rated: 91 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
