Lillet Red Aperitif
Initial whiffs detect ripe yet tart aromas of red grapes, raspberries and blackberries; 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 preserves-like manner. P.P.
