About The Wine

Chateau Thivin is one of the the premier producers of Beaujolais.

The Geoffray family have produced wines in the area for six generations. They are been one of the spearheads of the revitalisation of Beaujolais, where traditional winemaking and great vineyards have converged into some of the best value reds in all of Burgundy.

This is one of the family's elite single vineyard Cru examples of the famed Cote de Brouilly.

l’Heronde is made from the best portions of a single site halfway up Mount Brouilly with a southern aspect. The rest of the fruit is declassified into another cuveé allowing this to be the purest expression of this vineyard.

It's a luscious, vivid Beaujolais showing vibrant purple fruits and fantastic crushed-rock tannins. It's delicious now and will cellar a treat.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Rich, fleshy and succulent wine with a heap of exotic spice, blueberry and blackberry pie, and violet perfume. It’s ripe and juicy, almost sweet, but has ripe silty tannin and and a stony feel to go with that, and fine acidity through its core. Finish is full of fruit, pastry crust, and a whole lot more of that spice. Kind of exuberant now, but should come up very nicely with some bottle age." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

    Juicy and generous Beaujolais

    A more meaty, savoury nose than the 17, with a return of the sweet florals. Dried cranberry, dusty raspberry, mandarin and sweet white chocolate is sprinkled with mint, fennel and orange rind. Smooth, elegant and juicy with a floating river of minted strawberry and cranberry juice. Ever so slightly confected and tastes like it has seen more sunshine than the 17. Seamlessly juicy and ready to drink now.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
