In Maligny – as far north in Chablis as you can get – on the right bank of the river Serein, Domaine Daniel Séguinot is a small, 27 hectare estate founded in 1971. It is now run by Daniel’s charming and very switched-on daughters, Emilie and Laurence. Since they took over the running of the business from their father they have been instrumental in the move to domaine-bottled wines, produced without oak in a very pure, linear style.

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. The 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 you can go in the family tree, the Seguinots have always been working on 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. Each year, their wines are awarded in different competitions and tasting guides comforting us in our choices for winemakers.
