The first new product from Lillet for more than 50 years, Lillet Rose launched in May 2012. It is best enjoyed neat and well chilled in a small wine glass.
Lillet Rose is made from a blend white Grand Cru Bordeaux grape varietals (Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscatel) blended with 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 add the rose colour. Finally, Peruvian quinine is also added to the blend.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 16/01/2016

Appearance:

Clear, salmon pink.

Aroma:

Subtle red berry – strawberry, baked apple and delicate oaky wine with faint cut grass, orange blossom and pink grapefruit.

Taste:

Light bodied. Oaky, diluted red wine, strawberry, pink grapefruit zest, green melon, peach and orange flower water with subtle sage. Sweetness balanced by gentle oaky tannins and acidity.

Aftertaste:

Reminiscent of a light fruity Beaujolais with light oak tannins and lemon zest.

Overall:

Rich honeyed red berries, bitter pink grapefruit zest, orange marmalade and orange blossom.
