Winery Info/ Brand
Clos Floridène is a 31 hectares estate mostly located on the calcareous plateau of Pujols sur Ciron, near Barsac, in the Graves appellation. A few plots are also located on the pebbly terraces of Illats. Since 1982 Denis and Florence Dubourdieu have supervised the replanting of the vineyard.
Its name evokes the first names of its founders: Denis and Florence Dubourdieu. At the beginning in 1982, Clos Floridène is 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.
Dry white Graves has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years as fermentation in new oak barrels has yielded wines of crisp definition and glorious aromas, and the domaine's white wine is a classic example.
Region Info/ Origin
Gravel means "Graves", an important sub-region of the Bordeaux wine region. Then, much of the land sold without a Chateau name was simply called "Graves". Situated on the left bank of the Garonne River, southeast of the city Bordeaux and stretch over 50 kilometres, Graves is rooted in the tradition of wine-making. The region flourished till today producing large quantities of red and white wine for distribution and drinking pleasure.
