3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Lillet is a range of refreshing aperitifs with a smooth, fruity taste. The main grape variety in Lillet Rouge is merlot, which gives it a more tannic mouthfeel.

Tasting notes
Lillet Rouge is bright ruby-red in color. It has strong aromas of ripe red fruits with hints of vanilla and very fine spices. It is full-bodied, suave and velvety with a good backbone and softly rounded tannins.

(Ultimate Beverage Collection, Finalist)Herbs and berries mix with baking spices on the nose. On the palate it is gently sweet with deep herbal notes, orange zest and crushed flower petals. The dark green herbs carry through to a refreshing and dry finish.

Technical notes
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.
