The 2016 Clos Floridène Blanc is a huge overachiever. Green apple, pear and jasmine are some of the many nuances laced into this silky, beautifully textured white. Even though it has just been bottled, the 2016 is super impressive. Today, the 2016 stands out for its brightness and overall energy. (AG)
Taut, with pink grapefruit zest, white peach and verbena notes backed by a steely hint on the finish. (JM, Web Only-2017)
Racy and lively with some richness underneath. Very broad and flattering, though not a really long-distance runner perhaps. 16.5/20
For reasons unknown, I did not taste the Clos Floridene 2016 Blanc during en primeur, but hey, you just have to wait a few weeks and the wine is bottled and ready to go. It has a restrained nose, one that does not leap out of the glass like the Doisy-Daëne Blanc that I compared it with. This takes longer to unfurl, with cooking apple and subtle walnut notes. There is something Loire-like, almost Vouvray in style about this white Bordeaux. The palate is well balanced with just the right amount of fatness on the entry countered by a fine line of acidity. It has a very texturally satisfying, slightly creamy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is very satisfying. Tasted July 2017. (NM)
