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.

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.

90 Points - "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)

90 Points - "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)

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
