Description

Flores is the value cuvee in the Vincent Pinard line-up, and it certainly serves as a great introduction to the winery's changing style. It has been a great success back in France too - being a more food friendly style, you'll find this being poured at bistros and fine dining restaurants alike.

The trick here is a tad more oak. The wine saw 80% large format oak and 20% stainless steel, which is a rarity in a region which prides itself on freshness. While it's still racy and lean, there is greater depth and complexity. Gunflint, fresh citrus and lively floral lift, it's a wine with self confidence and panache. Bring on the goat's cheese.

2019 has produced an outstanding suite of wines at Vincent Pinard. Fruit for Florès is selected from their younger vines (but now pushing 40 years old) around Bue and all estate owned. The key vineyards are Emois, Vallons, Petit Chemarin, Le Bourg, Crépon, Dargente and Bois Brulés. The 2019 was fermented in 80% large oak cask and 20% stainless steel, as the brothers
have progressively increased the use of large oak over the last several years.

94 Points - "One of the Pinard family’s more widely available cuvées, this opens with a delightfully smoky, bright and fresh nose. A very polished start to the palate, with no oak character showing here, instead a seamless substance, underpinned by delicious acidity, bitter and charged, which cuts through the elegantly formed fruit of the palate very well. A very fine substance, culminating in a long and slightly gripped character in the finish. 92-94 Points." - Chris Kissack (The Wine Doctor)

Ordering

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.
