Fond Croze Confidence Red
Fond Croze Confidence Red is also known by its full name Côtes du Rhône Rouge “Confidence”, Domaine Fond Croze.
This organic wine is a brilliant dark garnet colour with purple highlights. There is good aromatic complexity to the wine and notes of blackberry and blackcurrant emerge once aired. The soft and silky taninns give a lovely spicy finish.

No animal products are used in making this wine: this is the case with all wines on our website. This is not the case with so many wines that are commonly on sale in the UK. Far too many wines have animal products used as a so-called production aid; they will often have a large array of chemical additives as well. Have a look at our page on additives allowed in wines. Many vegan wines are also organic or better still bio-dynamically grown. The care taken in growing the grapes and making the wine comes through in the taste of the final product. This is a vegan wine.
