A light, breezy aperitif for white wine lovers. This golden-orange liquid has a tart apple and citrus scent, with a touch of honeysuckle behind that, and a honeyed flavor with a dry, faintly spiced finish. Light-bodied and drinkable, made even more so with the addition of lime juice and club soda. Pair with cheese or charcuterie. - K.N.

Lychee, honey, ripe apricot, peaches, and nectarines create an incredibly aromatic bouquet. A medium dry palate translates aroma to ripe full flavors and voluptuous mouthfeel. The finish is dry and elegant.

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.
