Winemaker Notes

Clos Floridène Blanc has the special character of white wines from the great limestone soils. Green gold color, intense aroma with fruity notes of white peach, lemon, grapefruit, shades mineral, and toast. Powerful and fresh flavors of the fruit in all its brilliance, density and structure of a great white wine. It can be kept for at least 10 years.
Blend: 50% Semillon, 48% Sauvignon Blanc, 2% Muscadelle

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Clos Floridene Blanc from Denis and Florience Dubourdieu has a subtle but complex bouquet with scents of white peach, citrus fruit and a touch of patisserie. The palate is very well balanced and quite phenolic in the mouth, some lovely extract here imparting a slightly waxy texture. The acidity is keen and there is impressive tension and energy on the finish. It will drink young as usual, however, such is its complexity that I am more intrigued to discover how it will age. Do as you will. Barrel Sample: 90-92

Decanter
One of the great whites of Bordeaux, and in 2015 the lower acidity of the vintage is reflected in the dominance of forward, exotic apricot, nectarine and juicy peach fruit. This is a vintage that will attract many people who might feel Bordeaux white is normally too sharp; here it delivers freshness with a rounded edge.

Wine Spectator
Juicy and very energetic, with pink grapefruit, lemon peel and chamomile notes bursting out from the core, backed by long verbena and honeysuckle flavors through the finish. Best from 2019 through 2021.

Graves Wine

Bordeaux, France

View all products

Famous for both its red and white wines, Graves is a large region, extending 30 miles southeast of the city of Bordeaux, along the left bank of the Garonne River. Red wine producing vineyards cover well over three times as much area as the whites. In the late 1980s, the French created the separate appellation of Pessac-Léognan within the northern confines of Graves. It includes all of its most famous properties, and the southern suburbs of the city Bordeaux itself. In French "graves" is a term used to indicate gravelly soils.

Sometimes light and crisp, other times rich and creamy, Bordeaux White Blends typically consist of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. Often, a small amount of Muscadelle or Sauvignon Gris is included for added intrigue. Popularized in Bordeaux, the blend is often mimicked throughout the New World. Somm Secret—Sauternes and Barsac are usually reserved for dessert, but they can be served before, during or after a meal. Try these sweet wines as an aperitif with jamón ibérico, oysters with a spicy mignonette or during dinner alongside hearty Alsatian sausage.
