Many critics consider the Clos Floridène Blanc as one of the best Graves whites, worth being classified as a Grand Cru. The Sauvignon Blanc brings notes of fruits and a good acidity, white the Semillon adds roundness to the palate. A classic dry white Bordeaux to please any amateur!

Jancis Robinson

16.5/20 "Racy and lively with some richness underneath. Very broad and flattering, though not a really long-distance runner perhaps."

Decanter

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."

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

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."

Wine Spectator

89-92/100 "Taut, with pink grapefruit zest, white peach and verbena notes backed by a steely hint on the finish."
