LILLET ROSE APERITIF 750

In 1872, Paul and Raymond Lillet, brothers, distillers and merchants of wines and spirits, founded La Maison Lillet in the South of France. Around that time, Bordeaux became an important place for the European wine. It was also a main harbor for the import of spices, citrus and plants. Combine all of that with the idea of making an aperitif in Bordeaux and you have Lillet. It is a French aperitif wine, comprised of 85% Bordeaux wines ( a blend of the ones used for Lillet Rouge and Lillet Blanc) and 15% macerated liqueurs. The nose is replete with floral tones, honey, fresh forest, champagne, berries, ale, red apple, orange, cider, lemon, melon and flowers along with many kinds of citrus and tiger basil—all these scents that are implied by subtle aromas. The flavors follow the aromas with an articulate wine component added. The finish is clean, fresh and slightly bitter; the tonic nature of this aperitif is amplified to that of a wine—it is to be enjoyed. Try this neat, chilled, on ice, with a twist, in sparkling wine, with soda water or in a cocktail—and enjoy.
