NV Champagne Larmandier-Bernier Latitude Blanc de Blanc

Pierre and Sophie Larmandier are crafting some of the finest Champagnes of the modern era.

They take a much more natural approach to their craft than most in the region, managing their 15 hectares in the south of Côte des Blancs biodynamically (highly unusual for Champagne) and opting for a more hands off approach in the cellar. Their ferments are wild and often long, they keep the dosage low across their range of cuveés, producing dry, mineral-charged wines with incredible drive and purity.

The 'Latitude' is a non-vintage cuveé comprised of vineyards located along the same line of latitude in the south of Vertus. Forty percent is reserve wine (stocks started in 2004), with dosage coming in at a very low 4 grams/litre.

This is typical of their house style. It's long, dry, elegant and crystalline, showing both power and finesse. A gorgeous Champagne and remarkable quality for the price.

Champagne Laherte Freres Rose de Meunier NV

Laherte Fereres rise to the top of the grower Champagne movement has been meteoric.

The young Aurèlien Laherte is recognised as one of the brightest young minds in the region. Since taking control of his family's vines on the slopes to the south of Epernay, Aurèlien has received wide acclaim for his exquisite, laser-focused cuveés and is considered one of the most exciting producers in the region.

This is a blend of Pinot Meunier made in three ways. Sixty percent of the fruit is pressed off immediately making a base white wine, thirty percent is saignée Rosé, and ten percent is made as a full-blown red. It's aged in barrels in a variety of sizes, culminating in a delicious, complex sparkling Rosé that is outstanding value for money.

NV Paul Bara Brut Reserve

This is the cuveé that best encapsulates the artisanal wines of Paul Bara and most accurately represents his entire Grand Cru vineyard holdings in Bouzy.

Pinot Noir makes up the lion's share of the blend (80%), with a little Chardonnay lending some freshness and drive. But it's the Pinot Noir that is the star. It's deep, it's powerful, it gives the wine tremendous base notes.

If you are looking for grower Champagne at a reasonable price, this Paul Bara offering is always a very good option.

If your order is placed before 12pm we’ll get it on the truck that day. Delivery times vary considerably with Australia Post and unfortunately there is no Express Delivery Option for wine (because it is fragile and heavy). PLEASE NOTE that we are currently seeing significant delays in the Australia Post delivery network. Strict government health and safety requirements and very high parcel volumes are causing significant backlogs at the main NSW and VIC sorting facilities. Orders are still arriving safe and sound but you may notice slower delivery times and less frequent scanning updates than usual.

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).
