Delmas Cuvée Mémoire

Delmas Cuvée Mémoire


  • This wine is harvested by hand, made from the very best fruit sourced from the Espilies vineyard site.
  • Some extended time in oak barrels enhances the texture and aromatics of this Cuvée.
  • Grapes are grown from vineyards that are certified organic.

Varietal Composition: 80% Mauzac 20% Chenin Blanc

Elaboration: Méthode traditionelle : – the second fermentation takes place in the bottle, the classic vinification technique for fine bubbles. This wine is produced using only the juice from the gentle, first press.

Tasting Notes: A nod to Bernard’s grandfather’s ancestral technique of ageing in oak barrels, this wine has generous aromas of evolved pear, with good minerality and richness, and a long finish.




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.
