About

About This Wine

Le Pied du Clou (the foot of the nail) is a monopole from Givry legend, Francois Lumpp - meaning he is the sole owner of all the vines in the vineyard.

It's one of Lumpp's denser, more concentrated Pinots, with prominent dark fruits, and spicy overtones. Medium-weight but full of dark flesh with good length.

As ever with Francois Lumpp, an excellent value premier Cru.

About Francois Lumpp

Having inherited his family's 9ha of vineyards in the 1970s, it was probably only a matter of time before Francois Lumpp started his own label, which he did in 1991. Since that time, his wines have received much praise, showing that the Cote Chalonnaise in Burgundy's south can produce Pinot Noir of not only exceptional quality, but also amazing value, particularly when compared to the more prestigious vineyards of the Cote d'Or to the north.

Lumpp grows both Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in his vineyards, crafting a range of wines, most at premier cru level. While the whites are whole-bunch pressed, the reds are all destemmed, with all reting in barrel for around 12 months before release.

Burghound

"An equally ripe yet slightly cooler nose features notes of red cherry coulis, raspberry, plum and a touch of earth. The sleek, delicious and much more finely textured flavors possess notably better depth and excellent persistence on the dusty and youthfully austere finale. This is also quite good and worth considering”. - Allen Meadows (Burghound)

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. 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).
