This ‘Prelude’ is the entry point into the wines of this domaine, coming off the younger vines in their holdings. However, their focus on low-yielding vines, and the organic/biodynamic farming practices they use, elevate this wine above the ordinary.

Made with the intent to be consumed in its youth, it’s a pure and refreshing white, with gracefully rippling orchard fruit flesh and tantalising fruit flavours of nectarine and white flowers all held together by the zingy, chalky acidity.

Young-vine wine, from one of the young-gun makers of the region, perfect symbiosis.

For this cuvée we use all our young vineyards between 4 and 10 years old. Planted on clay-limestone and flint clay soils in Pouilly sur Loire. Aging takes place in stainless steel tanks on the lees for around 6 to 8 months. The bottling of Prélude is always the first of the new vintage, there for the name Prélude.

89 Points - "Made in a balanced style, the 2019 Pouilly-Fumé Prelude displays a touch of lees-derived character, a hint of florals and fine nectarine fruit. Pure, refreshing, and really easy, with nice flesh that caresses the mid-palate. This selection from a young-vines parcel provides appealing early drinking, but it has a bit more to it." Rebecca Gibb MW (Vinous)

90 Points - "The 2019 Pouilly Fumé Prélude is the early bird of the vintage. Still reductive but with ripe, elegant fruit aromas, the delicate smoke of crushed stones and ripe Chasselas aromas (although it's a Sauvignon, of course), this is a round, elegant and aromatic Pouilly with vivacious acidity and a long and aromatic finish. Nearly ready to go." Stephan Reinhardt (The Wine Advocate)

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.
