"Rich, concentrated flavors of black-cherry menthol and spiced-plum compote abound in this blend of Grenache (80%), Syrah (10%) and Mourvèdre (10%) sourced from vines averaging 50 years in age. It's a big, warming red spiked by crushed anise and black pepper but maintains a refreshing mineral edge. Ready now–2028."

"Based on 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, the 2018 Rasteau looks to be a terrific wine, offering classic black cherry, chocolate, scorched earth, and licorice aromas and flavors. Completely destemmed and aging in older, larger barrels, this medium to full-bodied Rasteau has good fruits, plenty of fruit, and a charming, satisfying style."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Domaine Fond Croze is truly a family business – any and all of the family are likely to be at the cave when you go to visit. Charles Long first purchased land outside Saint Roman de Malegarde after returning from World War I. His son, Raymond, expanded the vineyards once he started full-time in the business and today, Raymond’s sons Bruno (the winemaker) and Daniel (the vineyard manager) are the 3rd generation. The Longs produce a wide range of honest and unpretentious wines from their 70 hectares. From 2009, Domaine Fond-Croze follows organic methods.
