Lillet Aperitif Blanc

Lillet Aperitif Blanc 750ML     
Sku: 2054

Lillet is the only wine-based aperitif, a blend of 85% wine and 15% citrus liqueurs, produced in Bordeaux, France. The wines are carefully selected in the Podensac area and the citrus liqueurs are produced by cold macerating fruit peels in pure distilled spirits for several months. Following the Bordelaise tradition, Lillet is aged in oak so that it acquires its soft and rich character. Because it is not oxidized or aromatized with herbs like vermouths, nor artificially concentrated, Lillet is a very unique product.

Tasting notes
Lillet Blanc is similar to sauternes. Its color isa golden, shining yellow. It is flowery with a hint of honey and aromas of candied orange, pine resin, lime and fresh mint. Its taste is fresh, bold and fruity with an appealing aroma intensity and lingering aftertaste.
