About The Wine

This top value little Gamay comes from a family with over four centuries of history in the Beaujolais region.

Fourteen generations of Pirons have grown and made wine in the area, with the latest, Dominique Piron, having a 40 year legacy of producing top-flight wines from the most iconic Crus. 

Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France dubbed him, "one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, tackling with boundless energy the expression of wines of terroir, vinified in the pure tradition of Beaujolais....”. If you're going to try an entry level Beaujolais, there is really no better place to start.

This is light, crunchy and utterly smashable. The perfect light-bodied red to knock a slight chill into a while away an afternoon.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The vines for Piron's Beaujolais-Villages surround the crus on the hills of the northern half of Beaujolais. They mostly have an east-facing exposition and have sandy granitic soils comprising small stones that store the sun's heat and then release it gently during the night. This helps conserve the natural freshness of the fruit. These vines at 50 years old on average.

100% Gamay grapes are harvested by hand, selected on a sorting table, and given a very gentle, partial destemming before semi-carbonic fermentation takes place in cement and stainless steel. The fermentation never lasts longer than 8-10 days in order to preserve freshness.

Blend : Gamay (100%)
ABV : 13.0%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2022
Bottle Size : 750ml

The Wine Front

"Fresh, raspberry and cherry, floral perfume. It’s light and juicy, but sports a bit of ‘mineral’ stuff and fine dusty tannin to keep it on the straight and narrow. Finish is fresh. It’s easy to like." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

DDS review

"Scented with violets, raspberry and dark cherry with undertones of spice, clove and liquorice, this smooth and generous young Beaujolais reveals a faintly candied, brûléed aspect. It’s steeped in brightly lit red and black berry/cherry flavour, extending long and smooth over a fine, dusty spine towards a soft but focused and lively finish. A delicious wine that shows just how far this region has improved over the past 20 years or so at Village level." - Gourmet Traveller WINE

Banging Booj

Best value Beaujolais I've tried this year - bar none. Sweet, juicy plenty of structure too so it's not just one of those Booj nouveau bubblegum things. This is legit as they come and an absolute banger for the price. Buy it!

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).
