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.

Some of Beaujolais' most iconic names are featured here. For the enthusiast or for the novice, this pack is epic.

2018 Domaine Marc Delienne Avalanche de Printemps Fleurie Gamay

"This is very elegant, well formed gamay, very beautiful."
- Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)


The Avalanche de Printemps is a wine brought to bottle early, built around a concept of vibrancy and freshness.

The grapes come from the South-East section of Delienne's Fleurie vineyard where the soils are a mix of sand and rocky granite.This combination of soils, along with the gentle extraction of tannin and colour in the cellar by Marc's hand, yields a wine with an intoxicating perfume and finesse.

Bouyant, expressive, pulsating with energy, it's these kind of wines that are driving people back to Beaujolais in such a big way at the moment.

Only tiny allocations available for a limited time.

If you want to know what Cru Beaujolais is about, you won't find a better example.

2018 Jean-Paul Thevenet Morgon Tradition

Jean-Paul Thevenet is one of the original - and now legendary - 'Gang of Four', alongside other Beaujolais luminaries: Guy Breton, Jean Foillard and Marcel Lapierre.

A winemaker with a deep respect for tradition, Thevenet farms his old vines with an organic approach, expressing the nuance of his little patch of dirt with as little intervention as possible. Perhaps the most 'old school' of the four, Jean-Paul's wines are pure, expressive and have a rare life to them.

Now, his son Charly has joined him in the cellar since 2008 and the family tradition continues.

Speaking of tradition - this wine showcases the purity, levity, and gravitas of great Cru Beaujolais that will be the tradition of the best producers of the region for many years to come. This is Morgon in full flight - both vividly vibrant and earthily structured. It's a beautiful expression that will continue to evolve for many years to come.

2019 Dominique Piron Beaujolais Fleurie

"A wine very at ease with itself, and wonderful to drink."
- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)


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....”. Here Dominique shows his prowess in expressing the more mineral-charged and ethereal terroir of Fleurie.

It's a finer-boned wine than the Côte du Py. The 50 year old vines that form the basis of this wine deliver intensity and focus with wonderful floral perfume and a lingering sense of delicacy.

It's a truly charming iteration of Beaujolais from one of the masters of the region.

2018 Chateau Thivin Cote de Brouilly l’Heronde

Chateau Thivin is one of the the premier producers of Beaujolais.

The Geoffray family have produced wines in the area for six generations. They are been one of the spearheads of the revitalisation of Beaujolais, where traditional winemaking and great vineyards have converged into some of the best value reds in all of Burgundy.

This is one of the family's elite single vineyard Cru examples of the famed Cote de Brouilly.

l’Heronde is made from the best portions of a single site halfway up Mount Brouilly with a southern aspect. The rest of the fruit is declassified into another cuveé allowing this to be the purest expression of this vineyard.

It's a luscious, vivid Beaujolais showing vibrant purple fruits and fantastic crushed-rock tannins. It's delicious now and will cellar a treat.

2019 Domaine De Selene Beaujolais Villages Rouge

Sylvere Trichard's family has been farming grapes and making wine in Beaujolais for generations.

A deep personal and family connection to the land underpins everything he makes. Since taking over the family's vineyard holdings in Beaujolais in 2012, he has been marked as one of the young stars of the region. The wines are made with no additions, save the occasional inclusion of sulphur at bottling. These light, ethereal and detailed expressions of Gamay are first-rate.

The Village Rouge is a crunchy, energetic wine that leaps from the glass. It has the nuance of Burgundy with the smashability of Gamay. It's a wonderful thing to drink.

Only small amounts of Sylvere's wines make it to Australia and it won't be available for long.

2017 Chateau Cambon Brouilly

The Château Cambon project was born of a meeting of the minds of three of Beaujolais' most important personalities: Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Claude Chanudet and Joseph Chamonard.

The three decided to collaborate on a small, 13 hectare parcel of land planted in 1914, to further the reputation of Beaujolais' potential to produce fine wines a world beyond simple 'Nouveau' stylings that were known amongst the mainstream. The region has much to thanks these gentleman for, their foresight and vision, along with other notable contemporaries Guy Breton, Jean-Paul Thévenet, and Jean Foillard, revolutionised the perception of the region.

Today, Jean-Claude Chanudet and his wife Geneviève are the custodians of the project. They continue to craft the wines with the same ethos that infused the project from day one. Native yeasts are used in fermentation, the wines are aged in 200 year-old foudres, and bottled with little to no sulphur. 

This is a majestic example of Brouilly. Full of fresh cut flowers, sweet cherry and plum flavours and a soft, sumptuous mouthfeel that will make Beaujolais lovers swoon.

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

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.
