About the Wine

Les Graviers Chardonnay is named after the rocky, limestone soils from which it originates. The 60+ year old vines are lovingly harvested by hand, and Stephane Tissot uses his passion for natural, biodynamic winemaking to get the very best out of these beautiful fruits.

Energetic and generously opulent, it's bursting full of incredible crystalline, mineral character. Despite it's intensity, it remains well-balanced; a truly superb wine.

With only a smidgeon of Tissot's wines making it to Australian shores every year, this is one wine you don't find easily. If you're lucky, you might just be able to get your hands on it.

About Benedicte & Stephane Tissot

Andrew Jefford once described Stéphane as a, "human firework", which sums up his irrepressible energy and tenacity perfectly. Stéphane, along with his wife Benedicte are two of the most exacting and impassioned producers in the Jura today.

Their range spans the full gamut of the region: from delicious, toasty Cremant to laser-focused styles of Chardonnay and Savagnin; through his electric examples of Pinot Noir, Poulsard and Trousseau to their iconic oxidative Vin Jaune wines aged under flor. These wines have loudly proclaimed the quality and unique character of the Jura for many years. They are farmed biodynamically (Demeter certified), made in tiny and precise batches, and speak of each unique terroir under the Tissot banner in a unique voice.

The wines of Tissot sit at the very pinnacle of the region. They are natural, they are living, they are wines of unwavering integrity and singular character. They offer a transcendent drinking experience that you won't find anywhere else.

The Wine Front

"It’s heady in scents of ripe apple, sea spray, flint, sandalwood and almonds. The palate is similar, opulent to a point but finds chalky pucker in texture and an amazing spine of saline acidity at its core. It has energy, vitality, drive and a general sense of deliciousness. A brilliant, wonderful and vibrant chardonnay. Pedigree plus." - 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 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).
