About

About the Wine

There's Chardonnay, and then there's Jura Chardonnay. The Domaine des Notes Bleues Les Nouvelles Chardonnay delivers everything you expect from the Jura.

Through the use of some oxidative ageing, and with grapes sourced from very old vines, there is tension and complexity in the wine, showing notes of honeysuckle and nuts, a lovely smokiness, and some creaminess from the malolactic fermentation. Ageing on lees gives the wine a full, silky mouthfeel. Give the wine some time to breathe on opening and watch as the aromas and flavours develop in the glass.

While not as "out there" and oxidative as some Jura Chardonnay, you can really see the region's DNA in this rich and lovely Chardonnay.

About Domaine des Notes Bleues

Cedric Mottet founded Domaine des Notes Bleues in 2017, a modest estate comprised of roughly four hectares spread across numerous small plots in the communes of Mesnay and Arbois.

The vineyards are predominantly planted to Chardonnay, but he has Savagnin and Trousseau too and has plans to increase his holdings, so we can expect more reds in the future.

Cedric makes a multitude of cuvees, each its own unique expression but the wines are united by barrel aging for texture and a focus on minerality, complexity and purity.

Jura is an historic region where new additions are rare, rarer still is one that comes on to the scene with such astonishing quality. These are wanderlust wines, wines that make you want to pack a bag and set off in search of adventure, vinous or otherwise. We suspect this is just the beginning for Domaine des Bleues.

Additional Info

From the Importer

Vines taken over from Stéphane Tissot which were grown biodynamically. Hand harvested Melon à queue rouge which undergoes fermentation in stainless and upbringing on lees in old 300L barrels.

Here is a powerful and spicy Chardonnay d'Arbois, warm year, even where the degree of alcohol is imperceptible as the material is there. Smoky, almost peaty notes, classic Jura marls are easily identifiable in this wine. A very digestible cuvée, despite the feeling of breadth that emanates from it. For a beautiful cheese platter or chicken with cream.

FaQs

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 hello@differentdrop.com 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).
