Lillet Rouge NV / 750 ml.

Item#: 51953

WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2000
Crimson red in color, looking suspiciously like ruby port; the nose bears deep fruity aromas, with blackberries and orange zest at the forefront. The body is medium, leaning toward full, and the palate is surprisingly dry and herbal, with the fruit notes tucked into the pleasant background. The finish is warm and long-lasting.
WE85+85–89 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/15/2002
Cherry-red color. Assertive bouquet of freshly picked grapes, black cherries. black raspberries, apricots and pepper keeps the olfactory sense focused. In the mouth, it behaves like a fat, chewy red form the sundrenched south of France; tastes ambrosial and clean. Finishes short, mildly fruity and ripe.
WE85+85–89 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 8/1/2009
Initial whiffs detect ripe yet tart aromas of red grapes, raspberries and black berries; time in the glass rounds off the bouquet, adding delicate hints of cinnamon and grape vines. Palate entry is clean, tart and properly fruity; midpalate is intensely grapy, juicy and savory. Finishes elegantly in a grape perserves-like manner.

Where It's From

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

Juicy peach nectar and wild strawberry meet vibrant acidity and a floral flicker on the exit. Even the rosy hue is just calling out for mixing with bubbles or gin. Sip or mix.

NV / 750 ml.

Item #: 51961

WE9393 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 12/31/2011
A light, breezy aperitif for white wine lovers. This golden-orange liquid has a tart apple and citrus scent, with a touch of honeysuckle behind that, and a honeyed flavor with a dry, faintly spiced finish. Light-bodied and drinkable, made even more so with the addition of lime juice and club soda. Pair with cheese or charcuterie.
