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. Bruno perfects himself in the field of oenology and elaborates today cuvées of excellence and character. All aspect of winemaking is supervised by Philippe Cambie, who is considered to be among the world’s best winemakers by none other than Robert Parker! Guillaume, Daniel’s son, joined the family business in 2017 to carry on the development of the Domaine.

Vineyard & Vinification Note
This wine comes from the vineyard in Saint-Roman-De-Malegarde. Its exposure on the hill’s northern slope gives it a magnificent freshness.
The area where this wine is produced is a specific terroir where clay is mixed with white pebbles and sand on one part with another limestone part.
The harvest is destemmed and protected from oxygen as soon as it arrives in the cellar—vinification in stainless steel vats. A part is raised in French oak barrels, and stainless steel for the other part.
Beautiful shine with golden reflections.
On the nose, aromas of honey, fresh butter and peach. On the palate, an excellent frank attack where we find the aromas of brioche. Balanced, ample, rich and round wine with a finish on toasted notes.
A great aperitif and perfect accompanied by fresh goat’s cheese, or a vegetable risotto.
