About

About This Wine

The wines of L’Anglore sit at the pantheon of cult wines from Europe. Lithe, fine boned, yet so powerful that their presence is enough to make even the most seasoned sommelier swoon .

Traverses is a fresh, pure and seriously accessible wine. Loads of crunchy fruit, and uber finesse, in a as always light frame. Earth and spice, florals and fruit, it’s a potpourri of flavours, that sing and dance joyously in your mouth.

It feels as though it wouldn’t be an unreasonable thing, to just base your wine calendar around the twice yearly releases of the L’Anglore wines, so mesmerizing they are.

About Domaine de L'Anglore

Domaine de L'Anglore was founded by Eric Pfifferling in 1988 from 7 ha of ancient vines near the village of Tavel, in the Southern Rhône. Comprised of mostly Grenache and Mourvèdre, the vineyards are farmed organically and Eric employs natural winemaking techniques with the utmost attention to detail and hygiene. The resulting wines are squeaky clean expressions of terroir.

Tavel is perhaps best known for its rosé and, like all regions, Tavel AOC provide its fair share of hoops to jump through. Pfifferling works tirelessly to craft the best reds, whites, and rosés his vines can offer and, in doing so, finds they sometimes fall outside the regulations. As such, it is not unusual to see L’Anglore wines labelled Vin De France.

Eric Pfifferling is a passionate vigneron who is, in no small part, responsible for the movement against industrialisation in the Southern Rhone that we enjoy today, he is revered and considered a genius by his peers. When you taste his wines its easy to appreciate why.

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).
