Lillet Rose

75cl, 17% – France

The first new product from Lillet for more than 50 years!

Lillet Rose is made from a blend of white Grand Cru Bordeaux grape varietals (Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscatel) and liqueurs before being matured in oak casks.

The liqueurs used are flavoured with sweet orange peel from Spain and bitter orange peel from Haiti as well as locally sourced fruit liqueurs from south western France, which along with a small amount of Lillet Rouge, adds the rose colour. Finally Peruvian quinne is also added to the blend.

With red berry aromas, baked apple and delicate oaky wine with faint cut grass, orange blossom and pink grapefruit on the nose. On the palate, it’s fairly light bodied. Oaky, diulted red wine, strawberry, pink grapefruit zest, green melon, peach and orange flower water with subtle sage. Sweetness balanced by gentle oaky tannins and acidity.
