Domaine Fond Croze Confidence Cotes du Rhone 2021


Domaine Fond Croze Cotes du Rhone is something we love having on our floor.  It has a lot of dark and juicy flavours that resonate and impress. 

"70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. A roundness and generosity typical of Grenache associated with the power of our Syrah. So many assets for us unveiled the typicalities of a Côtes du Rhône rich in fruity and spicy aromas. The freshness of the North (exposure of the plots and the origin of the Syrah) and the warmth of the South (the Climat and the Grenache) make this wine very well balanced. Without passage under wood.

The French wine we mooch around more often than not.  The reason being, this is a very rewarding, juicy Rhone red that has both value and rewarding attributes.  The 2020 vintage seems to be less stressed than others so the wine exudes freshness while being bright and layered.

"All the expression of the Côtes du Rhône. Fruity, greedy and fleshy with nice tannins. The essential everyday wine. A pretty bottle to share with friends.

Brilliant dark garnet color with purplish reflections. On the first nose, we have a wine with a beautiful aromatic complexity. After aeration, it releases notes of black fruits, blackberries and blackcurrants followed by peppery notes. On the palate, the tannins are melted and silky, we find the aromas of black fruits and spices that we had on the nose. Nice amplitude at the end of the mouth, very greedy." Winery
