    This white Bordeaux wine is unique in that it is barrel-aged, which provides a more richer and complex wine. On the nose there are notes of soft tropical fruits and balanced with great acid and clean finish. If you’re looking for something interesting and great tasting, this bottle will deliver that and then some. You can't beat the price on this fantastic bottle!

    We always love this Dubourdieu white. And this wine will age in cellar very well. in 2005 we drank a bottle of the 1991 Clos Floridene and it was perfect. Very citrusy on the nose and palate-minerality galore.
    Drink from 2018 to 2030

    The entire wine world was shocked and saddened by the untimely passing of owner Denis Dubordieu in July of 2016. Winemaker, consultant, professor of enology, no other single individual had as great an impact on the quality of white wines being produced in Bordeaux today. He is survived by his wife, Florence, and his two sons, Fabrice & Jean-Jacques, who preserve his legacy of making spectacular wines of great depth and character. The 2016 Clos Floridene, Graves Blanc is no exception. Bright, fresh, intensely aromatic, with notes of stone and citrus fruits. Lovely weight and texture with just a hint of pain grillé. A blend of 56% Sauvignon Blanc and 44 % Sémillon. Aged in barrel (25% new) for eight months with regular batonnage. Drink or hold. Perhaps our best overall value in a white Bordeaux, and a great introduction to the style.
