Domaine Séguinot-Bordet, Chablis Grand Cru Vaudesir 2015
Séguinot-Bordet is a 16-hectare domaine specialising entirely in Chablis. This Grand Cru Vaudesir wine is the pinnacle of their range, and comes from vines of 40-65 years old grown on a south-south-east-facing plot of Kimmeridgian clay, said to lend the wine its iodine-like character. A rich, firmly structured wine, offering immense complexity and length, which rewards careful cellaring, typically reaching optimum maturity 3-5 years from bottling.

About The Winery
The property has been in the hands of the Bordet family since 1590 and is now maintained by 13th generation family member Jean-François Bordet. Jean-François pays particular attention to obtaining the best fruit possible through careful pruning, de-budding and harvesting. Often harvesting later than his neighbors in Chablis, Jean-François looks to achieve greater ripeness and, with his extended lees contact for the fermentation, he makes wines with great structure and a sense of lusciousness to them.
