2019 Croix & Courbet En Chemenot Arbois

Jura, France

Juicy, minerally Savagnin from a new natural winemaking star duo in France's Jura.




About The Wine

The wines from David Croix and Damien Courbet's first vintage are absolute showstoppers, and this fruity, and electric Savagnin is no exception.

Made in the "ouillé" style (as opposed to the oxidative, nutty Savagnins that also come out of the Jura), this drop is as fresh as it gets. Slow, whole-cluster pressing, wild yeast fermentation, and a mix of concrete and neutral oak all combine to make a superb expression of the grape in all of its minerally, citrus-driven glory!

All the grapes come from organically-farmed vineyards, with a small amount of sulphur added at fermentation and just prior to bottling.

About Croix & Courbet

Croix & Courbet is the exciting new collaboration between David Croix (the man behind the up-and-coming star of Burgundy's Cote de Beaune, Domaine des Croix) and Damien Courbet from the Jura's Domaine Courbet.

After first meeting at winemaking school in Dijon, the two hit it off and bonded over a shared love of minimal intervention, low-sulphur wines. They also share a love of the Jura's star grape, Savagnin, all of which they source from organic or biodynamically farmed vineyards.

2019 was the pair's first vintage, and with such stellar wines, there's hopefully plenty more to come.

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).
