It is a hard task, to redefine 15 generations of tradition. Florent and Clement seem to be up for this challenge, and aren't afraid to put their own signature on the wines. Chene Marchand is a great example, with a push on riper flavours without sacrificing the innate elegance and restraint typical of Sancerre.

With a balance of old oak, stainless steel and time on lees, you can definitely expect a more textural and broad style of wine here, but a lithe and agile freshness keeps all the flavours in line. Pears, apples and white stone fruit cascade through this, with ground pepper, orange leaf and alpine river water. It's refreshing, interesting and damned delicious. The Pinards are on fire, here.

Based in the village of Bué the Pinard family are into their 15th generation as vignerons. The latest generation at the helm, Vincent's sons Florent and Clément, have taken a leap forward in just the last few years. With time in large format oak, the wine captures an effortless balance of freshness and texture. Sourced from biodynamic vineyards.

97 Points - "As always at this early stage in its development, the 2019 Sancerre Chêne Marchand is a little bit reserved, but there's power and intensity within a focused mid-weight core. Expect aromas of spiced pears verging on nectarine, a touch of savoury character and the merest whiff of white pepper. This has lots of substance and an al most tannic, structured finish. It is nowhere near ready but it is balanced, harmonious and on its way to a graceful long life. Impressive without being showy – and that's not easy to do. The lengthy finish is like riding a wave that never ends." Rebecca Gibb MW

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.

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.
