Domaine Fond Croze was established in 1918 by Charles Long. Now in its fourth generation, this family business is run by brothers Daniel (Vineyard Manager) and Bruno Long (Winemaker). Daniel looks after the 70-hectare vineyard and takes care to apply viticulture that respects the environment. Their vineyard was converted to organic farming in 2009. Bruno perfects himself in the field of oenology and elaborates today cuvées of excellence and character.
« En LONG en large et en Travers » is defined as the bottle for friends par excellence! A balanced red wine from the South of France with a beautiful expression of fruit with fine and rounded tannins. A welcoming bottle, easy drinking, without pretence.
Fruity, delicious, crunchy, fresh and so enjoyable!
