Domaine Fond Croze is the fruit of the work of three generations. Back from the war (1914-18), Charles made an acquisition of land to support his family by sharecropping.
His son Raymond helped him work the land until his retirement in 1958. Over the years, new land was acquired and the vineyards expanded. Brother Bruno studied enology and worked at several different wineries honing his skills. Today he develops each wine with care.
The union of the two brothers and the Father gave birth to Domaine Frond Croze and construction of the cellar in 1997.
Shiny dark garnet color with purple highlights. On the nose, good aromatic complexity -- notes of black fruits, blackberry, cassis, pepper, and leather.
On the palate, the tannins are melted, silky, and smooth. Black fruit and spice. Beautiful amplitude in the finish.
