2019 Vin Noe Julie & Nas

Beaujolais, France

Hand-made, zero adds Gamay from Julienas, Beaujolais



About The Wine

This is Jon’s Julie & Nas (very nice play on words), from organically grown fruit out of the Julienas cru in Beaujolais.

It’s a deep and minerally expression of Gamay with ripe red berries, some cinnamon spice that’s almost Christmas cookie-esque, with a touch of that barnyardy wildness that the Cru can be known for. Fruit forward, with savoury, grippy tannins, it is an unconventional, yet contemporary take on Cru Beaujolais.

These current releases from Vin Noe are a real breath of fresh air, and Jon Purcell is certainly a new name to keep an eye on.

About Vin Noe

There are times when someone’s personality and demeanour are such that they are able to overcome what for others, are unsurmountable obstacles.

Such is the case with Jon Purcell, an American winemaker who works at Domaine Matrot in Meursault.

He started his own label, Vin Noe recently, only due to the relationship he was able to form with a local vigneron, who allowed him to lease vineyards in Puligny Montrachet and St Aubin, something only a handful of foreigners (especially Americans) are doing.

Making his wines in a natural way, he eschews the use of sulphur, while still making clean vinous styles in minute quantities. Jon is proof that hard work, and a positive outgoing nature, really do open doors that are shut to most others.

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).
