Chablis Séguinot-Bordet

By | March 25, 2008

Another day another cathedral related board game. This time is was Notre Dame, and the objective was to gain prestige and keep your Parisian corner free of rats. We seemed pretty rat free so were able to focus on finer things. We had a 2005 Chablis, Domaine Séguinot-Bordet from Berry Bros & Rudd.

A clear bright lemon gold it had plenty of fruity aromas. There was lemon and peach, as well as a welcome squirt of melon. It was bone dry with a crisp, mineral acidity which suited the wine. Medium bodied with medium alcohol the fruit dominated, but was cut nicely with a little steely minerality.

I picked this bottle up from Berry Bros outlet, saving myself almost three quid from the £11 asking price. I’d happily pay £11 for it, but it tasted just that little bit better knowing it was on sale.
