About

About the Wine

Chardonnay dominant white from the Cotes du Jura appellation full or ripe stonefruit, roasted nuts and powerhouse acidity.

Matured in old barrels for 17 months, which are topped up to prevent flor development - this is the 'ouille' style of Jura, the ones that don't have the aromas of fino sherry!

BB1 is 'Bebe One', so-named as it is the first cuvee made under the Lulu label.

About Lulu Vigneron

Ludwig Bindernagel studied viticulture remotely while working as an architect in Paris, and had fallen in love with Burgundy. He had initially hoped to purchase land there, however due to financial constraints, he, along with partner Natalie Eigenschenck, found that the Jura was the better bet. This led to the purchase of Les Chais du Vieux Bourg (now Lulu Vigneron) in 2000. Their first vintage came shortly after in 2002.

The original vineyard is about 2.5 hectares in Arlay, in the centre of the Jura, and Ludwig has since expanded the estate to include vineyards in Poligny, l’Etoile and the legendary Château-Chalon. Their vineyards are all organic and they do not use any insecticides, chemical fertilizers or machinery. They are currently going through biodynamic conversion for all vineyards and hope to achieve certification by the 2019 vintage.

Additional Info

From the Importer

Previously known as Les Chais du Vieux Bourg, Lulu Vigneron is introducing a new look for Ludwig Bindernagel. The winery has completed a full conversion to 100% organic viticulture and believes the occasion deserves a modern name and label. Ludwig is known to his friends and colleagues as Lulu, so this affectionate nickname was the natural choice for the winery.

Generous, super-satisfying Jura white, needs to time to open up, so even give it a decant. - Different Drop

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. 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. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
