Syrah is at home in the Northern Rhone Valley of France, and the Cote Rotie, in particular, is renowned for producing some beautiful, ripe expressions of the grape.

The Clos de la Bonnette Damas Pourpre (meaning "crimson damask", a type of fabric) comes from a 0.4ha parcel planted in the 1990s in the Coteau de Tupin vineyard in Ampuis, situated near the town of Vienne.

Following fermentation with natural yeasts, the wine is matured in five-year-old casks for 22 months. It is full of dark and red fruit aromas which carry onto the palate, as well as spice. The silky texture and long finish result in a truly delightful wine.

Cuvée from 2 plots in the 3 rd year of organic conversion and located in the town of Tupin-Semons.

Age of the vines: 35 years.

Harvest: 100% Manual

Vinification: maceration for 25 days; 20% whole bunch 80% destemmed harvest; alcoholic and malolactic fermentation on indigenous yeasts.

Aging: 15 months.

100% in 228L barrels of 4 or 5 wines.

Tasting: Dark red color with purple reflections; intense and powerful nose. Spicy aromas of white pepper with hints of raspberry; fine and intense on the palate with aromas of strawberries, blackcurrant and blackberry. Notes of spices.

92 Points - "A touch of volatile acidity initially but it doesn't dominate the wine and leads onto a light-bodied, approachable palate with slight tannins and tangy acidity. This has good energy and is best drunk young. From a rented parcel of vines on the lower part of lieu-dit Coteau de Tupin, in their third year into organic conversion. Shorter élevage this year, just 6 months, compared to the usual two years, with 20% whole bunch." - Matt Walls (Decanter Magazine)

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.
