"Pale straw. Refined nose of truffle - subtle, dense, complex and elegant. Immediately beautifully soft on entry. Run through with refined sap and plenty of taste. Splendid classy finish. "

2010 VINTAGE

91-93

Denis Dubourdieu’s Clos Floridene is crisp and lively on the nose with green apple, cut grass, a touch of white peach. The palate is ripe and joyful, lovely apricot and white peach, good acidity with a harmonious, well delineated finish. Superb and likely to be good value.
 

88-91

Lush but focused, with straw, creamed gooseberry and verbena notes gliding along, backed by a light butter hint on the finish. Nice length.

grapes with an aromatic optimum stage. After an eventual phase of skin contact, a slow juice
extraction is performed, protected from the oxidation process. Free run must is strictly separated from
press must and their clarification undergoes by natural settling.
Ageing Fermentation takes place in barrels renewed by quarter. Ageing lasts 8 months with lees regularly stirred.

‘This estate, somewhat of an insider's secret produces a brilliant white wine, full of fruit and character. It would merit cru classe status if a new classification were implemented.'
Robert Parker

‘Clos Floridene is probably the most interesting estate of the renowned oenologist, Denis Dubourdieu. The estate shows the quality possible in the southern Graves. This is a cool area and the grapes ripen late.' 1001 Wines You Must Try Before You Die
