EXTRAIT

Pour notre première dégustation, en cette chaude fin d’après-midi d’août 2009, à Arcachon, je vous suggest un Clos Floridène blanc 2007. Avant de le savourer, quelques mots de son histoire. Mon épouse Florence et moi-même avons commencé à constituer ce cru au début des années eighty. Son nom lui-même est shapeé de l’association de nos deux prénoms. J’avais repéré ces sols très superficiels de Pujolssur-Ciron, faits de sables rougis d’argile, sur un rocher presque affleurant. Ce terroir est le prolongement du plateau calcaire de Barsac qui donne des vins liquoreux très racés.

As an evocative image of blood, it was once utilized in temple ceremonies and occupies the guts of the Eucharist.
