About The Pack

Burgundian native Benjamin Leroux is one of the brightest minds and winemaking talents of his generation.

In 2007 he launched his eponymous label to wide critical acclaim. His has been a meteoric rise through the ranks of Burgundy's producers. His incisive modern approach to winemaking combined with his deep knowledge and respect for tradition has seen his small, hand-crafted cuveés coveted by collectors across the world.

The 2018 harvest is being heralded as one of the great vintages of the generation. The reds are beautifully articulate, showing red fruits and florals with rare density and underlying power. It's an astounding set of wines from Leroux.

Here is a selection of his wines for you to sample or cellar. These wines are in extreme demand from 2018. This pack won't be available for long.

2018 Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Blanc

Benjamin Leroux's Bourgogne Blanc is sourced from his vineyard holdings in Meursault.

This is a very high level of quality to be labelled under the banner of Bourgogne. The level of care and attention to detail undertaken by Leroux in crafting this cuveé is not dissimilar to the way he treats his 1er and Grand Cru offerings.

The wine is matured in large oval-shaped vats and left quietly to rest on lees and gather texture over the winter.

This is a Chardonnay with great depth and structure, and one of the best possible places to start if you're wandering into the wonderful land of white Burgundy.

2018 Benjamin Leroux Meursault

The white Burgundies of Benjamin Leroux are remarkable for their elegance and finesse.

This refinement and coiled power is more evident than ever in 2018, a vintage where everything came together perfectly. Leroux believes this to be an excellent vintage for both red and white wines in Burgundy. These are wines that will cellar impeccably.

The Meursault is in a very good place this year. Invariably one of the most beloved of the Leroux white villages, it is totally estate grown fruit this year, with select parcels from Moulin Landin, Criots, Bois de Blagny and Les Millerands combining to create a mellifluous Chardonnay of great purity and energy.

It has the weight you want in a Meursault, the pulpy, open fruit, but the acidity and drive is the thing that will take your breath away.

2018 Benjamin Leroux Puligny-Montrachet

94 points

"Creamy almond, white fruit and flowers, spicy cinnamon oak, mint. Medium-bodied, bright acidity and flinty texture, good energy through cool white fruits, some citrus cut to acidity, pretty and composed on a long textured finish. Polish, perhaps not the most exciting wine, but lays on gentle charm so nicely."

- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

2018 Benjamin Leroux Bourgogne Rouge

Benjamin Leroux's Bourgogne Rouge comes from a selection of plots across Volnay, Pommard, and Meursault with a smattering of fruit from Hautes-Côtes de Nuits above Vosne-Romanée and village and 1er from Monthelie.

It's a wine of great finesse and balance with an extra level of detail and complexity than you would normally see of red Burgundy at this price point.

It's the length, precision and extension of flavour that sets this apart from other Bourgonge Rouge. This is no clumsy, fumbling Burgundy, but an athletic wine of tension with red fruits and rosy floral notes to burn.

Another great release from Leroux and arguably his best under this label to date.

2018 Benjamin Leroux Savigny-les-Beaune

Benjamin Leroux's village level wines, particularly in the reds, are outstanding in 2018.

A vintage heralded for its power and depth of flavour, the 2018s will go down as one of the best of the decade.

The Savigny-les-Beaune is possibly the best value of the village level Pinot Noirs showing the power and sophistication not far off many 1er reds in the region.

This offers gorgeous drinking now and will cellar beautifully for the next decade or more.

2018 Benjamin Leroux Gevrey-Chambertin

93 points

"Strawberry, spice, a flicker or mint, perhaps some citrus zest here too, and floral notes. It’s medium-bodied, soft in acidity, but the tannin presents very well with a grainy chalky feel, red fruits and a little pepper on a finish of good length. Good. More to come, or so it feels."

- Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

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 aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

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 match it. We'll even retrospectively refund you if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

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, not really. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney. Our warehouse address for Click & Collect is: F5A, 42 Wattle St, Ultimo, 2007

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).
