It’s just a really good drink, and very accessible.

About The Wine

This top value little Gamay comes from a family with over four centuries of history in the Beaujolais region.

Fourteen generations of Pirons have grown and made wine in the area, with the latest, Dominique Piron, having a 40 year legacy of producing top-flight wines from the most iconic Crus. 

Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France dubbed him, "one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, tackling with boundless energy the expression of wines of terroir, vinified in the pure tradition of Beaujolais....”. If you're going to try an entry level Beaujolais, there is really no better place to start.

This is light, crunchy and utterly smashable. The perfect light-bodied red to knock a slight chill into a while away an afternoon.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The vines for Piron's Beaujolais-Villages surround the crus on the hills of the northern half of Beaujolais. They mostly have an east-facing exposition and have sandy granitic soils comprising small stones that store the sun's heat and then release it gently during the night. This helps conserve the natural freshness of the fruit. These vines at 50 years old on average.

100% Gamay grapes are harvested by hand, selected on a sorting table, and given a very gentle, partial destemming before semi-carbonic fermentation takes place in cement and stainless steel. The fermentation never lasts longer than 8-10 days in order to preserve freshness.

Blend : Gamay (100%)
ABV : 13%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2024
Bottle Size : 750ml

"Ripe cherry and raspberry, spice, a sort of pressed rose perfume. Medium-bodied, quite deep in flavour with a pleasing roundness, a bit of grainy tannin, meat and dried herb, and a good finish. It’s just a really good drink, and very accessible." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Banging Booj

Best value Beaujolais I've tried this year - bar none. Sweet, juicy plenty of structure too so it's not just one of those Booj nouveau bubblegum things. This is legit as they come and an absolute banger for the price. Buy it!

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 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: 3 Fig St, Ultimo, 2007/ Please make sure you have placed your order before arriving at the warehouse

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).
