Like Lillet Blanc, the main grape variety in Lillet Rose is Semillon. These wines are combined with natural liqueurs, handcrafted in Podensac from sweet and bitter oranges and berries. It is this meticulously balanced blend that gives Lillet Rose its delicate aromas.
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.
