Reminds me slightly of Pimms, this is a wine aperitif, 17%, thats delicately floral and fruity. Its a touch sweet so it serves well with a slice of lime and on the rocks. People in the US rarely have aperitifs, but this is a great place to start.

Really like this for a summery aperitif. Must be served very cold, preferably with a twist/slice of orange or lemon. Golden in color. Aromas of orange blossom, lemon, and beeswax. Flavors of bitter Seville orange, herbs, and tart meyer lemon. Very refreshing.

I was curious to try this after reading about it in a food magazine and seeing how it is available in every good wine store. Sweet and vinous to start, like a dessert wine, then growing a bit more tart and dry. Lillet White is a very drinkable fortified wine, but I found the red a little more interesting overall.

Straw yellow, white wine appearance. Perfumey, but gentle, bouquet offers hints of quinine, minerals, wine and citrus. Tart and acidic at palate entry; midpalate is clean, fresh, dry, winey, mildly citrusy and spicy. Aftertaste is brief, refreshing and squeaky clean. Elegant and sophisticated. Best Buy.(Wine Enthusiast)

The rounded bouquet features tropical fruit notes of banana and guava, smells of ripe grapes and kiwi and a subtle spiciness. The palate entry is luscious, gently fruity and keenly acidic; midpalate flavors include kiwi, white grapes, raisins, and a vegetal quality. Finish is ripe, delicately spiced, and delicious. An old favorite.

Golden color, shimmery; floral nose, honey, candied orange, pine resin, lime, fresh mint; distinct taste, generous, intense, aromatic, long. Lillet, the aperitif from Bordeaux, is best over ice with an orange slice.

Pale straw in color; the nose is intensely winey, with distinct lilac notes rounding out the experience. The body is medium, and the palate presents notes of citrus - lemon, grapefruit and orange - that blend wonderfully with herbal notes. The finish is warm, pleasant, and medium in length.

The formula for Lillet contains wine, orange peel and quinine, which provides the slightly bitter aperitif quality that has made this drink so popular. Lillet has an aroma of apricots, peach, orange, honey, and exotic fruits like mango, but the Lillet Blanc also has some hints of spice in the nose. The Lillet is fairly sweet but not as sweet as icewine, it also has an earthiness to the flavour that’s hard to describe. The alcohol is noticeable, but more as a warming effect on the throat. The orange and subtle bitterness make for a good balance with the sweetness of the fortified wine base.

Lillet White is a French apertif that has similar characteristics to wine. The aroma is gentle with hints of minerals and citrus. On the palate, there is acidity mixed with tart and hints of dry wine. Serve chilled for the best taste.
