Description

Agnes Henry is one of the most respected vignerons in Provence.

Her mind-bending examples of Bandol have been touted the world over. From dark, inky Mourvedre that is destined for dark cellars to some of the more sublime and structured Rosé wines made on planet earth, her Domaine in the commune of Le Brulat is one of the most picturesque in the Provence region.

This Rosé wine is exquisite. As if it were etched out of pink quartz, it's a wine that shows immense power and definition, whilst maintaining a slender, elegant frame.

In a world of pink wines that are bland and uninteresting, wines like this make a compelling case that Rosé made with care and intent can truly transcend to the world of 'fine wine'.

Appellation Bandol needs no introduction to Australia, it's wines were long ago successfully introduced to the fine wine scene here and have since graced many restaurant wine lists. The mainstay grape variety in Bandol is Mourvèdre which also needs no introduction as it has lived successfully domestically for over 150 years and has contributed to many celebrated old wines (and their fond memories). In the last 10 years some of Australia's best wine estates have been bottling special plots of Mourvèdre on it's own.

Mourvèdre is king in Bandol and Agnès Henry is queen in her village high up in the hills. Here at one of the finest Estates in Provence, Mourvèdre expresses all of its dark and meaty potential. Tour du Bon means Tower of Good; the Domaine was named after a watchtower which is said to have been sited here to protect the local village. Certainly, a sense of harmony and peace pervade the air.

    One of the best Rose’s I’ve tasted in the last five years. Not cheap but worth the extra price. Doesn’t have the sharp acidic aftertaste of many others

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.
