Delmas Blanquette de Limoux Cuvee Tradition

Issued from 5 centuries of tradition, the typical pronounced taste of the Blanquette of Limoux is due to the Mauzac grape. The name “Blanquette de Limoux” comes from the clear colour underneath the Mauzac leaves, a grape called Blanquette in the Limoux Language.

Colour

Golden yellow.

Bouquet

Aromas of apple, white flowers, honey, and garrigue (the dried herbs of Languedoc).

Flavour

Racy with a nice vinosity, marked by freshness, its maturity expresses itself with characters of hazelnuts and acacia flowers. Well structured in mouth, the final is fresh and elegant.

Pairing

To be drunk as an appetizer for people fond of racy wines, during the meal with grilled fish, or with cheese.
