Domaine Seguin-Manuel - Bourgogne wines
“If you are looking for affordable, well-crafted Burgundy, then look no further than here.” This is how Robert Parker speaks of the Domaine Seguin-Manuel and he is absolutely right.
Since Thibault Marion acquired and entirely overhauled the property in 2004, he has developed its reputation considerably. Everything there is implemented to produce high quality wines: respect of the environment, organic growing, manual harvest, strict grape selection, natural fermentation... Domaine Seguin-Manuel produces outstanding wines from the main appellations of Burgundy, which are unanimously well noted by all wine critics.
We completely fell for the estate's whites wines, which are simply superb - even the regional Bourgogne Chardonnay. We have picked different vintages for all of them, with the idea that they are all ready to drink now, though some might aged well for a few more years. Red wines are not to be forgotten, all showing a beautiful finesse and an elegant concentration, our favourite maybe being the Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, an absolute beauty!
In short, Seguin-Manuel is a little treasure which makes Your Sommelier very proud this week - especially since it is hardly available in the UK.
