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.
70% Grenache – 30% Syrah
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.
Stony-clay-limestone hillsides, with a North-West exposure.
The harvest is sorted and destemmed, then the vinification takes place in concrete vats. Ageing in vats for one to two years.
Bright dark garnet colour with purplish reflections. On the first nose, we have a wine with a beautiful aromatic complexity. After opening, notes of black fruits, blackberries and cassis are released and followed by peppery notes. In the mouth, the tannins are smooth and silky, the aromas on the nose of black fruits and spices are also present. Nice power and length – a delicious wine.
Ageing potential: 3 to 5 years.
Ideal with grilled meat, a charcuterie platter, beef bourguignon and cheeses such as comté, brie and some goats.
