With its beautiful white frosted glass bottle, this cuvée stands out, at least in its appearanced. To taste, it is full, soft and certainly mature, with acidity and flavors of ripe quince blending well. Named after a small dragonfly, Demoiselles originated in the vineyard of the Château des Castaignes. It is dominated by Chardonnay, a fine, well balanced blend.
