  • $ 13.00

Fresh, racy with a typical notes of crisp green apple and honey.The Mauzac grape varietal gives this wine its classic Blanquette de Limoux characteristics of crisp green apple. The texture is creamy, with very fine bubbles. Well-structured with fresh elegance and good length.

Domaine Delmas has long been considered a reference point for Limoux bubbles and the house is operated by Bernard Delmas, his wife Marlene, and their son Baptiste.

Bernard Delmas was a well-known chef before returning to Limoux to run his family’s business, and Bernard has made many improvements at Delmas over the years, most nobably a conversion to organic farming (Delmas was the first organically certified producer in Limoux back in 1986) and the expansion of their vineyard holdings (all high elevation in the mountains that circle the town) from 3 to 32 hectares,

Aging in bottle goes well beyond the established Limoux standards – Wines spend up to 36 months on lees and this is very apparent when one puts a glass of Bernard’s cuvees to his/her nose.
