Chablis is a Chardonnay making wine region in the northwest corner of Burgundy, France. Unlike other Chardonnay wines, Chablis rarely uses oak-aging, resulting in a very different style and taste profile. The appellation of Petit Chablis is harvested on the outlying vineyards or on the tableland.

The Seguinot family’s roots in Maligny, the front door to Chablis, can be traced as far back as 1590 when they began to write their history. Now, managed by Daniel and his daughters, Emilie and Laurence, the domain has been constantly evolving and is situated in a privileged South-West sun exposure.

"Our Domaine is located in Maligny, 8 km north of Chablis, on the North-South main road of the Serein valley. Maligny is one of the 19 villages that benefit from the world-renowned Chablis wine appellation. Thanks to a privileged South-West sun exposure, our village, leaning against the right bank of the Serein river, provides rich and well balanced wines.

Among 5,000 ha of planted vineyards, 300 ha sit on the district of Maligny. Our village is lucky enough to gather four levels of appellation: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru Fourchaume and Chablis Premier Cru Homme Mort.

As far back as we can go in the family tree, the Seguinots have always been working on vineyards. Daniel settled in 1971 on about 2 ha of Chablis vineyards with his father and grandfather’s help. Later on, in 1975, he extended the Domaine on 3 ha of Fourchaume and Homme Mort vineyards. The Domaine has been constantly evolving since the last 40 years and now covers 20 ha.

The nicest achievement and the best reward for Daniel was when his two daughters were born. Emilie proudly took over from him in 2003 and Laurence in 2008 in order to perpetuate the family tradition. The father/daughter close relationship allows enhancing quality and authenticity of our wines." Domaine Daniel Seguinot
