Château Haut-Valentin - Cuvée Blanc

picture of bottle of wine

Recently acquired, the plots of Château Haut-Valentin are quite old and of an exceptionally high-quality, both in terms of the Sémillon vines but also the nature of the soil and their exposure. Very complementary to Sainte-Croix-du-Mont, Premières Côtes de Bordeaux also belong to the appellations producing the Grands Vins Blancs Liquoreux de Bordeaux.
