About

About the Wine

Olivier Morin is making some world class wines from Chitry, which just happens to have the same Kimmeridgian soil as Chablis. Armed with such a valuable resource, all it took was a little bit of love and a lot of dedication to make a truly stunning Aligote.

Fruit was sourced from organic vineyards and was fermented with indigenous yeast strains before time on fine lees in stainless steel. Being so gentle in the winery has definitely had its benefits - the wine is aromatic, lean and fresh but full of complexity. Fresh apples and lemons come through, with a chalky mineral drive, and a delicate breadth and toastiness. This isn't Poor Man's Chablis - it's a delicious Aligote in its own right.

About Domaine Olivier Morin

After originally starting a career in music, Olivier Morin took over his family's winemaking business in 1992. The family had been in the wine trade since the 17th century, in the small Burgundian town of Chitry.

With his wife Nelly, Olivier crafts wines from land which is only a stone's throw away from Chablis, home to some amazing Chardonnay-based wines. While not certified organic, they endeavour to farm by these practices as much as possible.

Domaine Olivier Morin focuses on reds from Pinot Noir, whites from Chardonnay and Aligote, as well as sparkling wines (Cremant de Bourgogne) from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The wines always show amazing value and Olivier and Nelly's dedication to the grape.

FaQs

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 hello@differentdrop.com 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).
