Lillet Blanc is a medium color white wine, made from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes. The nose is of honey and orange and a hint of mint. While the nose may lead you to expect a sweet dessert wine, in fact Lillet Blanc leads with a taste of firm bitterness, which suddenly diminishes, leaving a lingering trace of orange, honey and herbaceousness on the palate. Lillet is a French aperitif wine with a refreshing smooth and fruity taste. The main grape variety in Lillet Blanc is sémillon, which gives it a full, fleshy structure.
