About the Wine

The Labruyere Coeur de Terroir is a wine that immediately announces itself, with lovely aromas of fresh dark fruit, as well as some aged characters such as dried black fruit, smoke, and leather. The tannins are soft and well integrated, kept in balance by the lovely acidity. As the name suggests, the wine shows the heart of the different terroirs from which the grapes were sourced, and is a really enjoyable drink.

Moulin-a-Vent, which means “windmill” in French, is seen as the most prestigious cru in Beaujolais, capable of producing wines from Gamay that show real finesse, some of which can be cellared for many years. The Beaujolais crus have helped to show that very serious, premium wines can be made in the region.

About Domaine Labruyere

Domaine Labruyere was founded in 1850, making it one of the oldest wineries in the appellation of Moulin-a-Vent in the Beaujolais region. When Jean-Marie Labruyere settled in Les Thorins, he acquired 25 acres of excellent vineyards, later acquiring the monopole Clos du Moulin-a-Vent, from which is produced Domaine Labruyere's best wine.

The family also runs Champagne Labruyere, as well as the famed label Jacques Prieur in Burgundy. Domaine Labruyere's wines are made by Nadine Gublin, who has worked with the family in Burgundy since 1990, and in Beaujolais since 2009. Alongside viticulturist Michel Rovere, their focus is on sustainable practices, optimal ripeness of fruit, and making wines of distinction.

Additional Info

From the Importer

Domaine Labruyère Moulin-à-Vent Coeur de Terroirs is a wonderful introduction to this Beaujolais cru. The 100% Gamay cuvée is a selection of great terroirs of Domaine Labruyere, predominantly grown on granite soils rich in quartz. Vines of 50 years of age on average, planted at 10,000 vines per hectare. Grapes are harvested manually in 25kg crates before passing through a double sorting table. Fermentation of 100% destemmed grapes takes place in concrete or stainless steel tanks, in order to isolate each parcel and to express the unique characteristics of the terroirs. The entire system is thermo-regulated. Half the wine is aged in concrete tanks, and another half in used barriques and 600-litre demi-muids, for 12 months. Slight filtration and no fining.

Critic Reviews

Decanter Magazine

"Classy and elegant, with intense dark fruit aromas leading to a glossy yet precise palate with smooth tannins, generous fruit and purifying acidity. Drinking well now, but should age well too. Drinking Window 2017 - 2021." Andy Howard MW (Decanter Magazine)

Wine Enthusiast

"This dense wine with fine tannins comes from a blend of different parcels. Structured and with a solid core, it has layers of black fruits and balanced acidity. It will be ready from 2021." Roger Voss (Wine Enthusiast)

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!

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.
