About The Wine

Les Terres Rouges, the red earth, is a charming organic Cabernet Franc from Arnaud Lambert, sourced from the hillside of Saint-Cyr-en-Bourg in Saumur-Champigny.

The old-vine site has a southerly exposure, gaining more sunlight and heat, to give a warmer, riper heart and darker fruit notes. There are also some lovely mulchy, autumnal elements to be savoured.

Just light to medium-bodied, with no oak involvement, and some whole bunches in the ferment adding some edgy tannins.

A perfect bistro red of great quality.

About Arnaud Lambert

Young Arnaud Lambert joined his father Yves at Domaine de Saint-Just in Saumur in 2005. In 2017 his own Arnaud Lambert domaine came into being, merging into his late father's estate fruit sourced from exceptional vineyards on long-leases from the famous Chateau de Breze. His wines and his reputation have soared over the last few years.

He now manages some twenty different releases from nearly 50 hectares of wines, all now certified organic, with biodynamic certification in progress.

His whites (Chenin Blanc) and reds (Cabernet Franc) are made in decidedly Burgundian fashion, mostly individual vineyard expressions across three communes; Montsoreau and Saint-Cyr in Saumur Champigny, and Breze in Saumur itself.

Additional Info

From The Importer

100% Cabernet Franc from vines averaging 45 years old planted on clayey-sandy silt over limestone with a warmer west facing exposition. 100% de-stemmed and fermented with partial whole berries with indigenous yeast in tank after separating free run and press juices with no SO2 for ageing and just 1 mg SO2 at bottling after 8 months in tank. Very fleshy and perfumed yet fine. Gives immediate pleasure with ripe expressive red fruits showing very good depth and complexity. Pure pleasure and a joy to drink young. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.

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 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).
