Description

Morgon Corcelette is a much celebrated Beaujolais climat, its sandy, pink granite soils and largely southerly aspect producing excellent wines of great perfume and density.

The Desvignes siblings source this from a small 0.8 hectare plot of mature 50 year old vines and it's a great example. A rich wine with plenty of stuffing, layered fruit and earthy notes making up a chewy mid palate but there is detail and freshness too. All the wines are fermented in concrete and likely this helps capture perfume and hone that refined perfumed close.

Behind the 1722 entrance, the Domaines Louis-Claude Desvignes's Cellars unveil 8 centuries of continuous production of Morgon from estate vineyards, 5 ha of which are in the most celebrated Cru of Cote du Py (including some 100 year old vines in Javernieres), and 8 Ha in Douby. Today brother and sister, Louis-Benoit and Claude, together carry forward the familial traditions of the Domaine. The soils are crumbly, crystalline rich in iron oxides, with layers of manganese, schists and ancient volcanic rock. All the wines are vinified and aged in cement tanks, with the aim of accentuating the minerality of the wines of Morgon.

95 Points - "The colour is impressively bright, deep purple/red, with a sousbois, undergrowth note on the nose combined with ripe dark plums and mulberries, while the palate is intense and lively, concentrated and fleshy, with fruit sweetness. It has a little more grip than most Beaujolais and is vibrant and almost succulent in the mouth. A totally delicious wine." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

92 Points - "Big wine, bold and full of flavour, dried cherry and raspberry, liquorice, almost chocolaty, spicy and peppery too. Rich silty tannin, good freshness, but also some warmth, slightly baked red fruit comes through on a pretty long finish. A lot to hang to here, but a good wine nevertheless." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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.
