About The Pack

It's become something of a trope nowadays, however it's truer now than ever: if you want 'value' in Burgundy, you've got to drink Beaujolais.

These six wines demonstrate the excellence of modern-day Beaujolais. These six scintillating Gamays come from all corners of the region and showcase the great terroirs from the finest crus. In fact they are all Cru Beaujolais, representing six of the ten Crus.

Some of Beaujolais' most iconic names are featured here as well as some rising stars. For the enthusiast or for the novice, this pack is epic. And Badass.

2019 Dominique Piron Beaujolais Brouilly

Fourteen generations of Pirons have grown and made wine in Beaujolais, with the latest, Dominique Piron, having a 40 year legacy of producing top-flight wines from the most iconic Crus. 

Le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France dubbed him, "one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, tackling with boundless energy the expression of wines of terroir, vinified in the pure tradition of Beaujolais....”. His expression of Brouilly shows all the charm and easy-drinking appeal that the Cru is famous for.

Brouilly is the fleshier, more supple of the Dominique Piron Crus.

It's a slightly richer, softer and more supple wine than the powerful Morgon or the mineral-charged Fleurie. It's perhaps the most approachable immediately and this is a very successful vintage of this cuveé.

2019 Marc Delienne Arpay A la Folie Saint-Amour Gamay

Je t'aime a la folie...I love you madly...

Australia's love affair with Gamay and Beaujolais continues, and we love it too. This light, fresh expression is Marc's most delicate wine, sourced from the eastern part of the Saint-Amour commune, where there's lots of alluvial, stony soils.

Violet, floral, red fruit aromatics with a gentle crushed rock mouthfeel, a real linear almost thirst-quenching style of great quality.

What's not to love, apart from the low amount of available stock?

2019 Thivin Beaujolais Villages Vignes d'Ecussol

Dashing and delicious Beaujolais Villages from old vines outside the Mont Brouilly home of Chateau Thivin, in the village of Quincie.

It has a cool, gentle, easy-drinking vibe - all the aspects of Gamay that has gained the previously-maligned grape so much recent popularity.

A premium everyday-drinker from one of Beaujolais' top producer.

Bottled under screwcap too!

2019 Georges Descombes Regnie

The Regnie from modern-day luminary Beaujolais producer Georges Descombes is all about silky seduction.

It's the wine in the Descombes range that is unshamedly fruit-forward and built for pure drinking pleasure.

The fruit is sweet and juicy with a silky, slippery palate. It takes the sophistication of cru Beaujolais and delivers it with side of cheeky slurpability.

If you like your Gamay bright and brimming with fruit, Regnie is for you.

2020 Domaine Charnay Beaujolais

Thibault Charnay only decided to bottle his own wines in 2019 so this is just the second release of his classic Beaujolais.

His family vineyards, recently converted to organics, are based in the golden soils, the 'Terres Dorees' in the southern part of the Beaujolais.

We loved the freshness, minerality and drive of this juicy beauty, with plenty of cherry and wild herb flavours and a stoney, slaty frame.

2019 Domaine de la Merize Moulin a Vent Beaujolais

Old vine and old school complex Beaujolais is a wonderful thing. Unadorned by neither oak nor artifice, the Domaine de la Merize is a pure expression of the great Moulin a Vent Beaujolais Cru.

Quieter at first glance than other more boisterous Gamays, this is a subtle, building wine that evolves into a dark fruited, almost aniseed/ licorice palate of seriousness and fine structure.

A small producer, relatively under the radar, which suits owner Patrick Bertrand just fine!

Badass Beaujolais - what a beauty

Perfect summer drinking and a variety of styles that has pushed the family out of its comfort zone. There are some really excellent and well priced wines in this half dozen that has led me to purchase another half dozen of one or two of those that we liked most - they are sooo delicious. Can't recommend this BB pack highly enough, Andrew Dulwich HIll

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 1300 668 385 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).
