2010 Clos Floridene. Grand vin de Graves. Bordeaux, France. 13.5%

IMG_1647

Blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon

Creamed toasted almonds. Crunchy apple, baked with a touch of clove and cinnamon.

Flinty, grapefruit minerals. Touch of passionfruit……. but not too much to put me off.

Spiced pineapple tarte tartin. Very broad in the mouth.

Good, solid wine but lacks sufficient linear acidity to make this a great wine.

$35 at Vintage Cellars, Shenton Park.

Noticed they had the 2009 for $50. Strange, given that 2010 was supposed to be a better year. Bordeaux does have a strange approach to pricing.

Tasted 31 January 2013

About Perth Wine Enthusiast

Casual observations of a Perth wine enthusiast. I am a recently turned 40 husband to a wonderful wife and father to 3 fantastic children. When work and family are not occupying me, my thoughts frequently turn towards two of my other passions in life, wine and food.
