Refreshing as can be too. Lovely.

About The Wine

This fantastic entry point into Chablis comes from the Picq family, who call the small village Chichée home.

Gilbert Picq and his children Didier, Pascal and Marilyn manage small, low-yielding plots across AC and 1er sites all across Chablis.

The family manages to retain beautiful delicacy and transparency in their wines, making them in a classic style with native yeast ferments and no oak in site. This minimalistic approach produces crystal-clear wines such as this lovely example of AC Chablis.

It's everything you want in a wine from this region - it's crisp, focused and all about minerality and precision. 

Drink cool, not cold.

The Wine Front

"Ever-charming Chablis from Picq. Reliable as.Crisp and light, shows a lick of ‘Chablis cream’ but it’s mostly about the wet fern, stony-mineral character and a dose of green apple juice. Ticks plenty of boxes, delivers a very good elevated offering for village Chablis. Refreshing as can be too. Lovely." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
