    Information about domain Clos Floridène

    Le Clos Floridène, located in the Graves near Barsac (near the villages Pujols-sur-Ciron and Illats). Its history will remain forever linked to its founder Denis Dubourdieu, also known as Pope of the white wines. He created this domain and restored its vines to make it one of the references of the appellation. The wines are flamboyant, balanced, never too marked by the wood, even in their youth. Today, the two sons of Denis Dubourdieu, Fabrice and Jean-Jacques continue the family heritage in the five family properties(Château Doisy-Daëne, Clos Floridène, Château Reynon, Château Cantegril and Château Haura).
