2018 Chateau Massereau Bordeaux Superieur Cuvee Tradition

Bordeaux, France

Blackberry, dried herbs, supple acid and powdery tannin. This is Bordeaux done naturally.




About The Wine

Organic Bordeaux made without additions in the vineyard or the winery. Here we have a pure and transparent expression of Bordeaux cohorts Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, grown in the gravelly banks of the Gironde.

At the fuller end of medium bodied this has some good fruit weight and certainly a firm tannin structure, but it carries both well, a testament to fastidious natural approach in both the vineyard and the winery.

A great introduction to Bordeaux for those who want to see just what the region can do in the hands of the right people.

About Chateau Massereau

Chateau Massereau is a rare Bordeaux gem that has resisted the industrialisation that has swept the appellation. Acquired in 2000 by brothers Jean Francois and Phillipe, the Chateau may be an imposing site on the Barsac landscape but the farming at Massereau is some of the gentlest and most thoughtfully considered in the region.

The brothers have chosen the natural path and work organically in the vineyards with a lo-fi natural approach in the winery. The pair produce red and sweet whites that are authentic, natural wines brimming with life. Look out for their Cuvee Tradition, a brilliant entry to Bordeaux at a handy price point.

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).
