What experts say  
Jancis-Robinson.jpg

16/20 "Intensely, almost stinkily Sauvignon on the nose. Every ounce of flavour has been coaxed out of these grapes! Far from fat, the wine is high in acidity and race. Needs a bit of time to open out."

88-90/100 "The Clos Floridene Blanc 2014 has a very composed nose in the making. This is keeping everything back, but there is appreciable delineation with citrus peel, white peach and apple peel aromas. The palate is crisp and fresh with good acidity, just a little rasping on the finish but there is commendable length and a sense of energy here. This will probably represent great value."

17/20 "A blend of 55 % Sauvignon blanc and 45 % Semillon, the sauvignon is dominant on the nose, with the round Semillon commg through in the mid palate. Acidity fairly high, this is a classic dry white Bordeaux, one for fovers of the style. Barrel ageing on this wine lasts for eight months, with regular lees stirring, in 25 % new oak. Lovely crisp aromatics, making full use of the vintage possibilities for white wines"

91/100 "This has notes of lemon zest and chamomile that streak around the yellow apple and white peach flavors, imparting a plump hint and mouthwatering cut. Drink now through 2020."
