We recommend drinking this Blanquette de Limoux over ice….it’s made to be incredibly and deeply fruity, it’s like sipping nectar.

This has a rich and heady nose of toffee apples and how we would imagine a summer orchard full of ripe apples would smell… Take a sip and enjoy sweet, rich, crushed apples. It is a heavenly balance between freshness and sweetness. Cheers and enjoy!

 

The Delmas story began almost a hundred years ago when Joseph & Gabrielle Delmas bought 3 hectares of vines. Bernard and Marlène are today’s owners and have made sacrifices to ensure it has remained in the family. Marlène went from flowers to fizz selling the florist shop she owned, to dedicate herself entirely to Domaine Delmas while Bernard an aspiring chef, turned down a job at the French Embassy in the States.

Over the years Bernard has acquired the best plots in Antugnac and today owns 32 hectares of vines planted with the four Limoux grape varieties. The vineyard is located in the highest and coolest part of the Limoux appellation: the Haute Vallée terroir. This area is called by some wine critics ‘Little Burgundy’.
