About The Wine

This is one of the greatest Rose wines on the planet. Period.

Clos Cibonne Caroline is the flagship pink wine from this benchmark Provence domaine. Clos Cibonne is the most southerly of the 18 Cru Classé growers in the Côtes de Provence AOP. The Caroline is the wine that captures the spicy, floral, saline, textural bliss that these costal vineyards produce at their absolute apex.

It's powerful and profound with a portion of flor yeast adding a touch of salty, nutty complexity to a wine with the depth the equal of many of the great wines of France.

Without being too hyperbolic, this may be the finest Rose wine you ever drink in your life. Best consumed after a few years in the cellar.

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Punchy rose, almost elevates itself into light red despite the very pale colour. Chewy tannins, licks of nougat and clove spice, red cherry, but fine, dry flavours, good length, good refreshment factor. Serious as. Elegance is a good word here too. Incredible wine to savour and spend time on." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 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).
