Clos Floridène is a 31 hectares estate mostly located on the calcareous plateau of Pujols sur Ciron, near Barsac, in the Graves appellation. Since 1982 Denis and Florence Dubourdieu have supervised the replanting of the vineyard. In the beginning, Clos Floridène was a small enclosed parcel planted with 2 ha of old white vines composed of Sémillon and Muscadelle, a wine-grower dwelling, an old cellar and 2 ha of fallow land which was planted, upon the acquisition of the vineyard, with Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard acquired its present-day size through the successive purchase of neighboring parcels. In 1991, Clos Floridène was significantly enlarged through the addition of Château Montalivet, a 13 ha vineyard. In 2004, under Fabrice Dubourdieu's supervision, the construction of Floridène's new cellar began. Clos Floridène produces a dry white wine and a red wine of Appellation Graves. The 23.9 hectare white vineyard is composed 56 % Sémillon, 43 % Sauvignon and 1% Muscadelle. The plantation densities range between 5,500 plants (1.8 x 1m) and 7,140 (1.4 x 1m) plants per hectare. Free run must is strictly separated from press must and their clarification undergoes by natural settling. Fermentation takes place in barrels renewed by quarter. Ageing lasts 8 months with lees regularly stirred. Clos Floridène Blanc has the particularities of white wines produced on great calcareous soils: green-gold color, intense aroma with fruity notes of white peach, lemon, grapefruit, toasted and grilled nuances. Powerful and fresh flavors of fruit at its best, with the density and structure of a great white wine. Aging potential of at least 10 years.
