Description

The Clos de la Bonnette Cote Rotie Prenelle is born of a hot vintage but the wine is so well balanced and fresh. Opening with notes of raspberry and blackberry, there is some subtle spice and the fruity and spicy notes continue on the palate. Acidity is medium but in consonance with the light tannins, due to the use of only old oak during maturation.

Drinking really well now, but it could also benefit from a few more years in bottle.

The subregion "Cote Rotie" is translated as "roasted slope", as the hillsides often receive long hours of sunlight, resulting in rich and ripe wines.

The vineyard was saved in 2019 by the August rain, around 60 cm (2.2 in) in three to four falls. I wanted to harvest early to avoid the rapid rise in degree, so it was important to take as little time as possible to assemble the team. The vineyard was blocked before the rain, like it was in 2018, then after the rain there can be a gain of 2° in a week.

94 Points - "Clear, fresh and aerial, this is slender with no excess weight even if the vintage was a hot one. Well-integrated oak provides gentle spice and gives a well-balanced, fine and light style that's charming and drinkable. From 30-year-old Serine-type Syrah on the higher part of lieu-dit Coteau de Tupin. 20% whole bunch, no new oak. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025." Matt Walls (Decanter Magazine)

Ordering

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

To add a gift box to your order, simply add at checkout. The special requests box is your friend, please give us as many details of what you are looking for and we will try our best, or get in contact to discuss it with you. 

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.

 

If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
