Lillet Rosé is a deliciously fresh and aromatic wine made from Sémillon grapes and handcrafted with natural liqueurs in Podensac, France. The blend is meticulously balanced with a fresh and full nose of berries, orange blossom and grapefruit with a slightly acidic taste and a long fresh and pleasant finish on the palate.
Jean Lillet came from Saint-Morillon in Gironde and moved to Podensac, a small town near Sauternes in the Graves region, in 1680. His descendants Raymond and Paul Lillet, merchants of fine wines, liqueurs and spirits, founded Lillet in 1872. They created Bordeaux’s first and only aperitif, known as Kina Lillet until the 1970s when it became simply Lillet, a blend of Bordeaux wines and handcrafted fruit liqueurs produced in Podensac.
