2017 Seguinot Bordet Chablis Vieilles Vignes$24.99
We have not worked with the wines from Seguinot-Bordet for several years since a long-time friend who was the importer left the company. The wines in the past had been very good, but after tasting through some 2017’s, I can say they are now even better. The family has ties in Chablis dating back to the late sixtieth century. They work their vineyards sustainably, debud flowers in the spring to reduce yields, green harvest in the summer, use indigenous yeast for fermentation, and age and fermented in tank with no cold stabilization. Their Chablis Vieilles Vignes drinks more like a premier cru than a village Chablis coming from 80 to 100 years old vines grown on Kimmeridgian limestone with a south-southeast exposure. There is a lot of wine here for the price, and with some negotiation, we can offer his great price with a further discount when you buy three bottles or more.
Serious Chablis for not a lot of money, with a tremendous Burghound review as well!
Burghound 89-92 pts! A discreet but not invisible application of wood frames the fresh and cool aromas of mineral reduction and essence of pear. The medium-bodied flavors possess notably better concentration if not quite the same energy before culminating in a muscular, sappy and almost painfully intense finish. While this could certainly be enjoyed young thanks to the abundant dry extract, there is good development potential too. Recommended. (Drink starting 2023)
