Clos Floridène Rouge 2015 (RP:90-92)

FRR00744A

Vintage

Clos Floridène莊園位於波爾多Graves地區的Pujols sur Ciron,自1982年以來由Denis和Florence Dubourdieu逐漸開發,這要歸功於連續購買位於最佳土壤中的地塊。該莊園的名稱源自兩位創始人的名字。

從地質學的角度來看,大部分葡萄園所在的Pujols sur Ciron土壤非常像巴薩克(Barsac)。一層薄薄的紅色粘土砂,富含氧化鐵,被稱為“Barsac紅砂”,位於石灰岩床岩頂上。這將葡萄藤的根深度限制在約50厘米。在整個夏季儲存在多孔岩石中的水在冬季逐漸分配到葡萄藤中,從而防止過度的水分壓力。一小部分葡萄園(3.1公頃)種植在Illats地區的一個充滿礫石和粘土的山丘上。

Clos Floridène vineyard, in Pujols sur Ciron, located in the Graves region, has been slowly developed since 1982 by Denis and Florence Dubourdieu, thanks to the successive purchases of plots located in the best terroirs. The name of the estate is derived from the two founders' first names.

From a geological standpoint, the soil of Pujols sur Ciron where most of the vineyard is situated is much like the one of Barsac. A thin layer of red clayey sands, rich in iron oxide, and known as "Barsac red sands", tops the limestone bed rock. This limits the roots depth of the vine to about 50cm. The water that got stored within the slightly porous rock throughout the summer is progressively dispensed to the vine during the winter, thus preventing excessive water stress. A small portion of the vineyard (3.1 hectares), on the commune of Illats, is planted on a graveled and clayey rump.

Tasting Notes:
Clos Floridène Rouge is strongly marked by an unusual association in Bordeaux, Cabernet-Sauvignon on calcareous soil.
With a bright and intense color, this 2015 Clos Floridène Rouge offers up luscious red-currant, wild strawberry and floral scents on the nose, almost Burgundy-like in terms of purity, with hints of mint, liquorice and smokiness.
The palate is well balanced with fine but firm tannin, The fruit and tannin are powerful, silky and fresh.
Plenty of energy here, a Graves with a nod to Volnay, bound to offer 8-10 years of pleasure.
