About The Wine

Olivier Morin's family have lived in Chitry le Fort for longer than anyone can remember.

His house was built by his great-great-grandparents, and his grandfather was the first vigneron in their region to bottle his own wines. It's fair to say, the terroir of the region is in his bones.

The family vineyards are located just south of Chablis, so their particular style of wine shows on the leaner style of Burgundy. These are terrific wines that show a through-line of minerality and a sense of tension.

The Chardonnay, as you would imagine, is tight, flinty and extremely elegant. It's a lovely wine in a tighter style that will develop nicely over the mid term.

About Domaine Olivier Morin

After originally starting a career in music, Olivier Morin took over his family's winemaking business in 1992. The family had been in the wine trade since the 17th century, in the small Burgundian town of Chitry.

With his wife Nelly, Olivier crafts wines from land which is only a stone's throw away from Chablis, home to some amazing Chardonnay-based wines. While not certified organic, they endeavour to farm by these practices as much as possible.

Domaine Olivier Morin focuses on reds from Pinot Noir, whites from Chardonnay and Aligote, as well as sparkling wines (Cremant de Bourgogne) from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The wines always show amazing value and Olivier and Nelly's dedication to the grape.

Additional Info

From The Importer

Old vines, Chardonnay grown on kimmeridgian limestone and aged on lees in old large oak barrels. Almost no batonage. Delicious white Burgundy farmed organically in Chitry, just 10 minutes from Chablis. Minimal intervention.

Generous and charming with a beautiful fleshy palate filled with apple and peaches. This is an honest Burgundy wine showing a sense of place and true authenticity. Savoury salty finish.

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).
