About the Wine

Fans of Jean Foillard will already know that these wines are in high demand. What they may not know is that this wine was not made by Jean Foillard. No no, this was made by his wife Agnes and her friend Nadine. Clearly there is something in the family - this is utterly spectacular.

It has the typical depth and structure which we have come to expect from Foillard - and from Morgon for that matter - but there is a certain lightness and poise to this which you won't find in the rest of the range. Sour cherries and forest undergrowth abound, with a healthy dose of earthy spices and an enticing softness. This will age for the mid-term, but it won't last long - there is a vitality here which is hard to resist.

Additional Info

From the Importer

This is a very unique wine; made by Jean's wife Agnes and her friend Nadine, there was not much of it to go around and it wasn't made available to all markets so I am very happy to have some - it sits stylistically between the Morgon Classique and the Cote du Py and is a great value that drinks superbly as you would expect for this famous and legendary estate; the Foillards nailed the 2018 vintage.

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 02 8376 8775 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).
