Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Seguin-Manuel, Burgundy, France 2017
Regular price £48.10
Founded in 1824, three generations of Manuel family ran their estate until the late 1800’s when Marguerite Manuel married Félix Seguin, creating Domaine Seguin-Manuel as we know it today. Nowadays, the estate is controlled by Thibaut Marion, who has around 4 hectares of land, predominantly in Savigny. Additionally, he produces a wide range of cuvees from négoce fruit that he purchases from trusted growers in other appellations across Burgundy. Thibault has always been involved in the wine industry. His parents have their own estate in Burgundy but he took the decision to strike out on his own and re-develop the reputation of Seguin-Manuel, rather than wait to take over the family domaine. Since beginning his work on the estate, Thibault has established a strong reputation for the production of reds that possess structure and finesse with fruit that is bright and ripe.
