What the Critics say
Screwcap. There’s a light creamy sweetness on the nose, as well as that lees freshness that is so hard to describe. Lovely balance of ripe lemon fruit, fresh pears and zesty grapefruit-like acidity. Lots of wine for the price.
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.
