About The Pack

This pack offers an easy way to taste test some of the great French artisan producers we've been uncovering over the last few months.

It contains a mix of styles all at a good price-point, made by real families with love and care.

A couple of whites, a cheeky Provence Rosé, and a few reds. The perfect way to slip into our French collection and discover something new!

2016 Domaine Clos Roussely Loire Sauvignon Blanc

This lively Sauvignon Blanc offers great value for money.

This vineyard has been owned by the Roussely family since 1917. The son, Vincent Roussely, took over the family business and had the farm organically certified in 2009.

Vincent is a staunch traditionalist, using horses in the field and a gentle hand through the winemaking process to produce this elegant, crunchy, lightly textural style of Sauvignon which is screaming for a side of fresh seafood.

It's bright, juicy and terrific drinking from this respected Loire Valley producer.

2017 Le Domaine d'Henri Les Allees du Vignoble Petit Chablis

The Laroche family name is one of the most respected in Chablis.

This old family has deep roots in the region, with a love for the terroir of Chablis being passed on from generation to generation since 1850.

These wines are classic examples of the region. The fruit is picked at full ripeness, traditional winemaking is applied in the cellar (stainless for Petit and AC Chablis with old barrels utelised for the 1er cuveés).

They offer a high-quality, easily approachable example of Chablis. This Petit Chablis is a very good place to start if you want to sample the pristine wines of this great wine-growing region.

2017 Chateau Gassier Sables d'Azur Cotes De Provence Rosé

The Gassier family is one of the oldest wine growing families in the Provence region.

Their organic vineyards enjoy a unique micro-climate for the region, with the breathtaking Monts Auréliens providing protection from the strong Mistral wind.

This classic style of Rosé shows flowers, white strawberry, delicate spice notes and clear, crisp acidity.

It's the perfect little pink to knock back on a warm afternoon and offers very good value for an entry into the world of Provence Rosé.

2017 Georges Descombes Brouilly

Georges Descombe is the son of a Beaujolais vigneron who found his inspiration for his own label in the legendary wines of local legend, Marcel Lapierre.

Whilst working on the bottling line for many of the local producers, Georges was taken with the purity and finesse of the wines of Lapierre who's natural approach has carved a path for so many in the region. Georges has taken his father's traditional farming practices to another level, now having both his inherited and acquired vineyards certified organic and choosing a hands-off approach in the cellar.

His Brouilly is a light, bouncy expression of this famous site - charged with a gravelly/mineral intensity derived from Brouilly's granite soils.

It's a jubilant wine, full of energy and life. A treat for those who seek lighter reds with a big personality.

2017 Clos Troteligotte K-Or

Here's a wicked, naturally made Malbec from the motherland.

Winemaker Emmanuel Rybinski harvests his fruit by hand, then ferments and ages it in unlined concrete tanks. Manu prefers his tanks unlined to encourage more microbial life during his wild ferments. It gives his wines a raw energy and wild edge and without oak, allows a more pure expression of the variety.

The 'K-OR' is a ripe, luscious red brimming with blue fruit, florals and minerality. The red 'K' on the bottle paying homage to the 'bloody/iron' notes he so often sees in this cuveé.

This wine flies in the face of the regional status quo, and it's a flat out delicious drink.

2016 Domaine du Seminaire Cote du Rhone

This great value little Cote du Rhone is put together by Hervé Pouizin, a winemaker who's family has farmed their patch of land in the foothills of the Alps, for four generations.

Hervé and his wife, Mathilde, have converted the property to organic farming. Hervé says, "My grandfather taught me a lot and taught me to observe and take care of the plant..." He now farms with that philosophy at the front of mind.

This wine is a blend of 70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Carignan. It's open, warm and ready to drink. There's the signature richness of the region, tempered with a little more restraint from the cooler site where this family resides.

Value for money wise, this is a cracking all-rounder red.

delicious, organic and French!

Loved this mix of whites and reds! Really different flavours compared to Australian varieties - fun! We loved the Sauvignon Blanc - not at all like the en-masse NZ and Australian versions of this grape variety!

Yes we offer volume discounts on larger orders. Orders over $499 get a 5% and orders over $999 get a 10% discount. This will be automatically applied during checkout.

How does the price match work?

Everyday Low & Consistent Pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
