The Cuvée des Demoiselles is the Château Hostens-Picant’s signature white wine. The vines are grown on the vineyard’s best clay-limestone and clay-flint plots. It is often recognized as being one of the very best Bordeaux white wines. It is produced with the greatest care and attention to detail. Its maturation phase in barrels gives the wine a very pleasant structure and helps it to age in the very best conditions. It is available in many places of excellence and distinction.
