About The Wine

The vintage Grand Millesime from Paul Bara is only made in vintages deemed to be outstanding.

This sophisticated vintage cuveé is comprised of 90% Pinot Noir and 10% Chardonnay, harvested from their enviable vineyard holdings across the sought-after Grand Cru village of Bouzy.

It's all about finesse with this cuveé, with winemaker Chantale Bara the authentic character of the vintage shine.

It's rare to see vintage Champagne from an acclaimed small grower available at this price. Take the opportunity while you can because the team here certainly is.

About Paul Bara

Paul Bara is one of the most revered names in Bouzy.

Bouzy is one of the few villages in Champagne where 100% of the vineyards are rated Grand Cru. Bara's vineyard holdings are the cream of the crop and have been sought after by the larger Champagne houses for years.

Produced predominantly from Pinot Noir, these small cuveés mainline a sense of place. This is quality Champagne, hand-crafted now by Chantale Bara. For the scarcity, reputation and value on offer, these are standout offerings from this prestige region.

Vinous

"The 2007 Brut Millésime Grand Cru is super-expressive and a real pleasure to taste today. Readers who enjoy Champagnes with a bit of flavor development will find much to admire in the 2007. Baked apple, chamomile, hazelnut, pastry and vanillin notes run through the 2007. Ample, creamy and inviting, with soft contours, the 2007 hits all the right notes. Drink it over the next handful of years. Disgorged: October 2016. Dosage is 8 grams per liter." - Antonio Galloni (Vinous)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

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.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
