Lillet Blanc Aperitif, France $30-$40
With a bright, full-yellow colour, this citrus-flavoured fortified aperitif, based on white Bordeaux wine, in many ways resembles Sauternes – except for its citrus and spice notes. It’s fully sweet, rich and utterly delicious when served chilled, before or after a meal, or as a dessert wine. Drink now. 17 per cent alcohol.
Food: creamy blue cheeses; sweet desserts
