Description

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.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

This wine comes from the vineyard in Saint-Roman-De-Malegarde. Its exposure on the northern slope of the hill offers a magnificent freshness.

Terroir: Vineyard of Saint-Roman-De-Malegarde, stony clay-limestone hillsides, with a North-West exposure offering a slight freshness in the mouth. Cuvée made with old Grenache vines.

The harvest is sorted and destemmed. The vinification is long to allow an optimal extraction and is done in concrete vats. Ageing in French oak barrels of 350 litres for one year.

Tasting Note

Very intense, ruby ​​red colour with purplish reflections. On the nose, aromas of intense fruit, liquorice, and spices. In the mouth, a remarkable power. Elegant and very long in retro-olfaction with a spicy aromatic finish. Ageing potential: 4 to 7 years

Jeb Dunnuck

Coming from the La Croix du Coq lieu-dit and all Grenache aged in used oak, the 2021 Côtes Du Rhône Villages Vaison-La-Romaine Romanaise has a juicy, mulberry, kirsch, pepper, and candied violet-like bouquet as well as medium-bodied richness and depth on the palate. It shows the pretty, fresh, elegant style of the vintage but is balanced and has ripe tannins as well as a great finish. 88/90 Points, March 2023

Food Pairing

Perfect with red meat, grilled meat, game and roasted lamb.
