Domaine Raissac ‘Les Lys’ Rose of Cabernet
Made From: Cabernet Sauvignon
Tastes Like: Red Currant, Black Currant, Spice
We don’t come across roses of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon terribly often, but when we do, we’re floored by how rich and delicious they are! Domaine Raissac ‘Les Lys’ is filled with the classic black currant flavors for which red Cab is famous. This is complimented by lighter notes of red currant, strawberry, and cherry on the palate. The grapes for ‘Les Lys’ were grown in clay and limestone chalk soils, which enhance the wine’s aromatics and lead to a sensation of boldness – even though the wine itself is fresh and light-bodied. Domaine Raissac is owned by Marie & Gustave Viennet, a wife and husband team who tend Gustave’s ancestral vineyards and produce terroir-driven wines in the heart of Languedoc-Roussillon.
