This Seguinot Bordet Chablis is a lively, thirst-quenching Chardonnay that is bursting with crisp green-apple and bright lemon flavours.

Expert Reviews & Awards
"Cool, and restrained, Chablis needs time to unfurl in the glass. There is a great deal of fruit purity on the show though, combined with the subtle ripeness of stone and orchard fruits, lovely acidity, and energy on the palate which makes one want to drink another glass. One of Jean-François Bordet's best. Drink: 2022 -2025" 93 points.

"This juicy, thirst-quenching Chardonnay highlights crisp green-apple and lemon flavors lifted by streaks of lime acidity and steely minerality. Medium bodied and zesty, this approachable but elegant dry white would enhance anything from french fries to oysters on the half shell. Best enjoyed young. "

Made in a sparkling new wine cellar, the Chablis was fermented and aged in horizontal temperature-controlled tanks (imagine a normal wine tank laying on it’s side) to maximise lees contact
Domaine Seguinot Bordet
Domaine Séguinot-Bordet dates from 1590 and is now managed by the young Jean-François Bordet who has 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.

Chablis is the name given to Chardonnay from the Chablis wine appellation, in France. Chablis is also the name of the town that lies in the valley of the Serein river, that runs through the northern part of Burgundy, one of the world's most loved wine regions. Burgundy is famous for Chablis (White Burgundy) and Pinot Noir (Red Burgundy). The climate in Chablis is is very cool, resulting in bright, fresh wines with high acidity. Chablis and Petit Chablis are also known for displaying aromas and flavours such as green apple, lemon and flint. Most village level Chablis wines are unoaked and some wine experts believe that Chablis is the purest expression of the varietal character of Chardonnay. There are four appellations within Chablis, each appellation denotes a level of quality. In general, the best vineyards are planted on the slopes that have favourable south-facing aspects. The vineyards that face south, receive more sunlight, which allows for greater flavour development in the grapes. The four appellations are: Petit Chablis - usually grown on the flatter land and the higher slopes that mostly face north. These wines are quite austere. Chablis - also grown on the flatter land and north facing slopes but closer to the village of Chablis. Premier Cru Chablis - tend to be located on the slopes with a better aspect (to sunlight). These wines show riper fruit development and more concentrated fruit aromas and flavours (more citrus that green apple). Grand Cru Chablis - The Grand Cru Chablis wines come from just one slope and within the 7 'climats' (officially designated vineyard plots). These vineyards have good exposure to the sun, being south facing. Grand Cru Chablis are sometimes aged in oak, which adds a rounder texture and subtle flavours. The biggest challenge in growing grapes in Chablis is frost, this is often managed through the use of sprinklers and heaters. Chablis is a magnificent and much-loved wine. Truly a 'must try' for Chardonnay drinkers everywhere!

Chardonnay loves to grow in all climates, producing quite different wines in each. In cooler regions like the Yarra Valley, Tasmania, Tumbarumba and Orange chardonnays show delicate flavours of citrus, grapefruit and green apple. The acidity is lively, sometimes even racy or steely and the fruit is pure, focused and lean. In warmer regions, particularly the Hunter Valley and Margaret River we grow richer chardonnays that show tropical fruit flavours like peach and apricot. In distinctly warm to hot areas like the Barossa Valley, we find rich expressions of ripe pineapple and fig really lifting out of the glass.
