|What experts say|
16.5/20 "Racy and lively with some richness underneath. Very broad and flattering, though not a really long-distance runner perhaps."
89/100 "Dubourdieu's signature wine delivers great definition of citrus and mandarin zest, with impact and personality. They have done a good job with the vintage despite lacking the zesty pulse of the best years."
89/100 "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."
89-92/100 "Taut, with pink grapefruit zest, white peach and verbena notes backed by a steely hint on the finish."
