    Overall: I was very disappointed with Lillet – Considering it is one of the Kings of fortified wines it doesn’t offer much to me, It is a well made wine and paired with the right gin can work in Martini’s but choose a high quaintly gin. Nice for a home bar.

This is made with white Bordeaux wines and fruit brandy and is aged in oak for between 6 months and a year.
