About The Wine

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.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"Georges Descombes has, once again, produced a sensational Brouilly from his superb, steep sloped parcel opposite the Mont Brouilly. This 2017 is magenta/ruby in colour with a very alluring, fragrant bouquet - red cherry stone, cranberry and rocks. In the mouth it is divine, tightly wound with taught elegance, a refreshing mineral bite and fine definition. On the finish it’s juiciness is offset perfectly buy a refreshing, stony finish. Once again the granite soils of Brouilly have given this wine a sublime gravelly crunch. Superb drinking with great energy and drive." - Andrew Guard, importer

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.

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?
