About The Wine

Kewin (Kéké) Descombes has grown up amongst the vines of Beaujolais at the heals of his father, the great Georges Descombes.

At the age of just 21, Kéké completed his first solo vintage. His father gave him around 15 acres of vines in Morgon to get his own roll on, and over time, he's added to that collection.

He makes his wines with a similar natural philosophy to his father looking for vineyard purity to show through in each cuveé.

This is textbook modern Beaujolais - enlivened with sweet blue fruits, flowers, earth and spice. This is a very popular cuveé from the younger guard of the region. It sells out each year in short order.

Additional Info

From The Importer

Kewin - or Kéké to his mates - has Beaujolais in his blood. The son of Georges Descombes, close mate and occasional, unofficial fifth member of Kermit Lynch's famous “Gang of Four” of Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Thévenet, Jean Foillard & Guy Breton, it was almost inevitable that Kéké would follow a similar path.

His wines have all the pretty poise, acid and elegance you’d expect from such heritage, and a refinement, structure and confidence that belies his age. Farming is organic, intervention is minimally minimal. Still just in his twenties, Kéké is unambiguously one of the reinvigorated Beaujolais region’s brightest young talents.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"This has textbook Beaujolais aromas of blueberries, vine sap, earth, flowers and iodine. Whistle clean, bright and uplifting this is medium-bodied and wonderfully pure. The juicy ripe fruit is laced with slate and stems that push the flavours long in the mouth. Fluid and vibrant acidity keeps things fresh and adds a tang to the finish that keeps calling you back for another sip. Brilliant! be careful - very moreish." - Andrew Guard, importer

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).
