Clos Floridène Blanc Sec
Vintage 2019

The 2019 Clos Floridène offers intense scents of apple blossom, freshly sliced pear and yellow flowers. Wonderful. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, slightly tangy in the mouth and impressive depth and vigour on the finish. Excellent.

Clos Floridène Rouge
Vintage 2019

The 2019 Clos Floridène has an appealing airy bouquet with dark cheries, bilberry and pressed iris aromas tha gather momentum with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit. I find this very cohesive and well balanced, just a touch of spicebox coming througt on the finish. As usual, I bet this is one of the best values once released.

Jaune doré. Superbe bouquet marqué par la minéralité, la fraîcheur et des agrumes. Notes de pierre à feu, de craie et de pamplemousse.

Très belle complémentarité entre une douceur contenue et une race aiguisée ! Ça c'est du Barsac… ça a de la gnaque ! Finale crémeuse et saline. Un vin rafraîchissant. 2024-2044
