Domaine Séguinot-Bordet 2011 Chablis

Domaine Séguinot-Bordet 2011 Chablis,  $17.84-$22.99, 92 points, appeared a crystalline light gold with a copper tint.
Aromatic lemon and tangerine with just a hint of soft floral honey were beautiful.
Light-plus bodied, crisp, with over-the-top minerality and bright acidity spoke volumes as to what so often makes a Chablis something different from California Chardonnay; you'd almost think it was a totally different grape.
As the Domaine Séguinot-Bordet 2011 Chablis warmed, the texture gently transformed into a more creamy one.
A lemon/lime sherbet flavor with hints of slate carried citrus into the long finish that added easy ginger and alcohol (12.5%) notes.
Very clean white wine, and just lovely!
