A sniff of this wine will delight your senses! We discovered notes of white peaches, white flowers, hints of honey, ripe redcurrants and a touch of toffee apple… Take a sip and you’ll find the wine really fruity with ripe peaches and honey, it’s dry and crisp on the finish.  All in all – delightful.

Bottle size 750ml.

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’.

    A bit of a grey day, so tasting wine is a great way to cheer up.
    we had the Delmas Passion with a chicken dinner
    Before eating i thought it tased of apples, whilst my wife thought it was more citric and lemony, which goes to show how we all taste things differently.
    With the food it has a strong enough flavour not to be overpowered but didn’t it self over power the food, it was very complimentary.
    All in all a very pleasant sparking wine, it easily would match a champagne in a blind tasting.
    Its very good value for money at the price and I would quite happily serve it to friends both at a special occcasion or a simple BBQ, I’m sure there would be no complaints at all.
