Review by Jeb Dunnuck
eRobertParker.com #210 (Dec 2013)
Rating: 89
Drink 2013-2018
A blend of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre that was aged in 20% new demi-muids, the 2011 Rasteau offers up an interesting array of ground pepper, dried wood, tobacco and darker berry-styled fruit. Medium-bodied and nicely textured, it has loads of fruit and an upfront personality. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years. Importer: Serge Dore Selections, www.sergedoreselections.com

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jun 13
(80% Grenache and 10% each Mourvedre and Syrah): Bright violet color. Intense red fruit and floral aromas are complemented by white pepper and musky herbs. Sappy and precise on the palate, offering good heft to its bitter cherry and raspberry flavors. The peppery note comes back on the finish, which features supple tannins and a hint of allspice. 89 Points

Domaine Fond Croze Rasteau Vieilles Vignes 2011

80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre

Domaine Fond Croze Rasteau is a magnificent, mouthwatering Grenache-based old vine blend from a fine terroir of chalky-clay soils on northwest facing slopes in the southern Cotes du Rhone. Rasteau is the land of Grenache, which on this terroir allows red wines in a crunchy red fruit style, along with black cherry, juicy plum, and wild blackberry jam aromas.

Elevated to the status of Cru du Rhône in 2009, Rasteau gained recognition for the consistent quality of its wines. The terroir lies around Mont Ventabren, a former alpine terrace alluvium composed of a matrix of red clay, rich in pebbles of quartz and gray limestone. These limestone-rich soils are perfectly suited to the Grenache vines, which unearth a dashing minerality and a panoply of aromas. Deep ripe dark fruit aromas mingle with unmistakable garrigue spices and leather, opening to floral notes. Excellent structure and smooth tannins through the long finish. Consulting winemaker Philippe Cambie is a true star of the Southern Rhone, and showcases his modern style magnificently in this wine.

Domaine Fond Croze is the culmination of the work of three generations of the Long Family. Charles Long first purchased the land after returning from World War I. His son, Raymond, expanded the vineyards once he started full-time in the business. Today, his sons Bruno (the winemaker) and Daniel (the vineyard manager) produce wine at Domaine Fond Croze, which Raymond, Bruno, and Daniel began officially in 1997. It’s truly a family business - any and all of the family is likely to be at the cave when you go to visit.
