About This Wine

The Grand Cru of Bougros in Chablis is a truly exceptional site. Right in the heart of the region, this is the most north westerly of the seven Grand Cru vineyards.

Concentrated and complex, this truly is apex wine from Chablis. It often gets lost in translation, the subtle differences between Grand Cru, Premier Cru etc. Yet, there are times when a singular wine is so expressive, no matter your level of Chablis nerdiness, we’re able to understand the special character of what’s before us in the glass.

While there is much to appreciate with this wine right now. Its true character, and special nature is something that we’ll need patience to be rewarded with over the next decade or so.

About Pierrick Laroche

A rising star in Chablis, Pierrick Laroche released his first wines from the 2010 vintage to great acclaim.

He has 33 ha under vines across seven Villages vineyards in Chablis, including multiple 1er Cru vineyards, and a single Grand Cru vineyard (Bougros).

A 2nd-generation winemaker, Pierrick took over the family estate, Domaine des Hates, which was established by his father in 1970.

All movement in the winery is via gravity, and while the majority of wines are vinified in tank, he does utilise small amounts of oak for his Cru wines.

Critic Reviews


"‘The 2019 Chablis Bougros Grand Cru has a crisp, well defined bouquet with scents of flint and green apples, nicely focused with touches of orange rind emerging with aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, harmonious and poised with a dab of honey towards the finish, ditto a dab of spice on the aftertaste. Very fine." Neal Martin (Vinous)

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 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).
