Clos Floridene Graves 2015 Product #32756 (In Stock)
Clos Floridene Graves 2015 Clos Floridene Graves 2015

A young estate founded in 1982 by Denis and Flourence Dubourdieu's purchase of an old cellar and 3.5 acres of fallow land in the heart of Graves.  Dubourdieu's reputation was made on white wines - and he makes a fine one here - but his experience consulting with Cheval Blanc is testament to his red wine skills, too.  This fine young Graves is about 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot and shows classic Graves minerality and spice.  Drink 2018-2028.

"The 2015 Clos Floridene offers up luscious redcurrant, wild strawberry and floral scents on the nose, almost Burgundy-like in terms of purity. The palate is well balanced with fine but firm tannin, a little pinched at the moment, but by the time of bottling it will have undone its top-shirt button. Plenty of energy here, a Graves with a nod to Volnay, bound to offer 8-10 years of pleasure."Wine Advocate 90-92 points
