2016 Clos Floridene Blanc 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 89 points
Drink by: 2018 - 2023
The Clos Floridene 2016 Blanc displays a nose of spiced apple slices, warm pears and pie crust with a waft of dill seed.
Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling zestiness with a racy line and apple-laced finish.
"Clos Floridene produces a dry white wine and a red wine of Appellation Graves and is under Denis Dubourdieu Domaines.
Denis Dubourdieu and his wife Florence both come from old families of "vignerons" of the Bordeaux region. Assisted by their sons, Fabrice and Jean-Jacques, they run several estates totaling 135 hectares, in the Sauternes, Graves and Cadillac- Côtes de Bordeaux regions.
Dubourdieu is all at once a scientist, a vineyard owner and a wine maker. Educated as an agronomist, an Oenology Professor at the University of Bordeaux since 1987, he has concentrated his research studies on yeasts, aromas and colloids. He is considered as one of the top specialist in the winemaking process and the ageing of white wines."
