Certificate

Originally created in 1962, Lillet Rouge is based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes. Like Lillet Blanc, this is aged in Yugoslav oak casks for a year before bottling. Between 1990 and 1993, Lillet Rouge was reformulated with higher-quality base wines to produce a more complex flavour.

Όψη:

Clear, burgundy red.

Μύτη:

Mildly oaky Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot wine notes jump out the glass with delicate quinine.

Στόμα:

Wine and oak tannins, and lightly bitter quinine beautiful dry rich grape fruitiness with subtle black pepper spice adding frisson.

Επίγευση:

Red wine tannins and leathery oak.

Συνολική αίσθηση:

If you like a fruit-led wine balanced by heavy tannins and fancy a tad more alcoholic kick then this is the aperitif for you. (And me!)
