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 as well as some rising stars. For the enthusiast or for the novice, this pack is epic. And badass.

2019 Domaine Marc Delienne Greta Carbo Fleurie Gamay

Greta Carbo is a slinky, seductive number, polished and beautifully poised. Of the suite of phenomenal wines from this producer, Greta may be the most suited to a little extra time in the bottle.

This cuvee is denser, wonderfully structural and shows a perfect balance between sweet earthy tannin and plush pools of fruit.

If you've ever wondered what great 'natural' wines taste like, this is as good an example as you will find. It's savoury yet smooth and flat out stunning to drink.

2020 Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Clos Vernay

The Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Clos Vernay shows structure and elegance with all the attractiveness you like in a Fleurie.

Coming from vines planted between 1975 and 1980 in a sheltered valley, the grapes were ripe and treated in a manner that allowed the fruitiness to shine. Yet there's also some complexity here from violets, spices and vanilla. There's a surprising amount of tannin here, taking it far away from the realms of Beaujolais Nouveau and demonstrating the rich, ripe and complex wines available in the region.

Like other fine Beaujolais, it'll cellar well for ages.

2020 Domaine Pavillon de Chavannes Cote de Brouilly

Winemaker Laure Jambon-Mareau is the fifth generation of her family to produce wine on the rugged, steep slopes of Beaujolais' Cote de Brouilly region.

The family farms five hectares of 40-year-old vineyards, using hand-picking to select grapes of the utmost quality. After picking, the wine undergoes fermentation in traditional concrete vessels, using indigenous yeasts. After the ferment, the wine is racked into stainless steel vats before bottling.

A bright, floral, and juicy Cote de Brouilly, more serious than a glou-glou but just as quaffable!

2021 Jean-Paul et Charly Thevenet Morgon 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 in bottle for as long as you can resist opening it...

2020 Laura Lardy Fleurie Moulin a Vent Le Mont

The Laura Lardy Fleurie Moulin a Vent Le Mont is the kind of wine you open on a Friday night and before you know it, it's all gone.

Made with carbonic maceration in concrete vats, the wine is fresh and lively and makes you realise why people love to drink Beaujolais. With a lovely mix of red and black fruits, drinkability is high while there's some surprising complexity here, with a touch of spice and a little bit of tannin grip.

Serve it with a light lunch or white meat, and can even be chilled in the warmer months.

2020 Gregoire Hoppenot Fleurie Les Moriers

Gregoire Hoppenot took over nine hectares of vines across some of Beaujolais' best terroirs in 2018, and has already made a name for himself as a star on the rise.

He's converted this parcel of Fleurie vineyards to organics; not an easy thing when dealing with old-school, gobelet-trained vines up to 90 years old! The grapes are grown on granitic, mineral-rich soils on east-facing slopes, and after hand-picking, are fermented naturally in concrete tanks with full use of whole bunches.

The wine spends eight months in large, old oak foudres for enhanced texture, and has a real smoky, minerally sense of presence about it. Well worth cellaring.

    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 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).
