2009 Chateau Massereau Bordeaux Superieur Cuvee K

Bordeaux, France

Organic Bordeaux in the perfect spot for drinking. The epitome of Luncheon Claret.



About The Wine

Cuvee K is the heart of the Massereau Estate and comprises nearly half their production, it is the wine they hang their hat on, and rightly so.

A lesson in the importance of balance it's a four way split between the Bordeaux classics: Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc, Merlot, and Petit Verdot. The quality of the organic viticulture is apparent, as is the gentle lo-fi touch in the winery, and this is a wonderfully transparent Bordeaux.

The French use the word 'digestible' to describe wines of this ilk, we don't use it so much but, in this instance, it is the perfect fit. Perfumed, balanced and medium bodied this is a serious Bordeaux but one that will leave you feeling energised.

About Chateau Massereau

Chateau Massereau is a rare Bordeaux gem that has resisted the industrialisation that has swept the appellation. Acquired in 2000 by brothers Jean Francois and Phillipe, the Chateau may be an imposing site on the Barsac landscape but the farming at Massereau is some of the gentlest and most thoughtfully considered in the region.

The brothers have chosen the natural path and work organically in the vineyards with a lo-fi natural approach in the winery. The pair produce red and sweet whites that are authentic, natural wines brimming with life. Look out for their Cuvee Tradition, a brilliant entry to Bordeaux at a handy price point.

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 02 8376 8775 or 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).
