About this Wine

From the villages of Chichee & Prehy, the 40 year old vines are planted on regionally classic soils of Kimmeridgian, and limestone. This Jurassic soil, with its maritime fossils, is what provide the wines of Chablis with their hallmark minerality and salinity.

The palate of this wine is fruity, well-balanced, silky, racy, and offers a light acid structure. It is slightly unctuous, with a faint nutty character in harmony with its yellow stone and orchard fruit elements.

Like all their wines, there is a distinct modern feel, while at the same time still being true to its origins, both respectful and representative of the terroir on which the grapes are grown. The perfect drop for any occasion.

About Domaine Gueguen

The estate of Celine and Frederic Gueguen is made up of 25 hectares of vines in the villages of Chablis, Chichee, la Chapelle Vaupelteigne, Saint-Bris and Irancy.

Celine, from a winemaking family, worked with Frederic at her father Jean-Marc Brocards estate for over a decade before they decided in 2013 to go it alone and create their own wines.

Their cellar is in the small village of Prehy, where they work out of a 19th-century building crafting a deliberately modern style of wine, with a focus to respect and express their terroir.

One of their main goals is to preserve their soil, which is why they use neither chemical fertilisers nor herbicides. From 2015 onward all their wine have been made using exclusively organic processes, with the domaine beginning its conversion to certified organics with the 2019 vintage.

Made up of 35 separate parcels, Domaine Gueguen vineyards provide both great complexity, and incredible richness.

Additional Info

From the Producer

Mineral and fruity, Chablis is a wine for pleasure, to be enjoyed on any occasion. A surprisingly balanced wine, with richness, freshness and that legendary minerality that characterises the great years in Chablis.

A brilliant yellow colour, a fine and very fruity nose reminiscent of white-fleshed fruits and citrus fruits. The palate is supple and surprises with its freshness. We find the fruit has a slight liveliness which prolongs the aromas.

    Light on fruit, however it is pleasing on the palate with a refreshing aftertaste.

FaQs

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 hello@differentdrop.com 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).
