About The Wine

Alexandre Chartogne is regarded amongst the top ranks of Champagne's younger generation of artisanal grower producers.

Inspired by his time with the legendary Anselme Selosse (whom he describes as his "Wine Father"), Alexandre has experimented with multiple modes of production during his tenure in control of his family's plantings just north of Reims. Since 2006, he has managed his sites on the southern slopes of the Massif de Saint-Thierry with organic practices (uncertified), and believes that in the traditions of his ancestors lies plenty of wisdom. He now makes the wines as they did - with the wines aged in barrel and handled with care.

Decanter dubbed him, "One of Champagne’s brightest rising stars." His wines are richly flavoured yet precise and offer a clear reflection of the terroir he farms.

The Sainte Anne is his excellent value NV cuveé. It is comprised of predominantly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the family vineyards dotted around Merfy. Consistently, this offers great depth and character for a Champagne of this price point. Great buying if you're exploring the next generation producers of Champagne.

About Chartogne-Taillet

"We have returned to the savoir-faire of wine growers from times long gone by, when man could not do harm by using products or machines. We work by hand, or with the help of our horses in the fields."

This beautiful quote from Alexandre Chartogne says a lot. Not just about viticulture but also the humble and respectful way he goes about crafting his champagnes.

Based in Merfy at the Northern most tip of Montagne de Reims, Alexandre is regarded amongst the top ranks of Champagne's younger generation of artisanal grower producers. He farms a multitude of small parcels, and his wines are stunningly transparent reflections of site. The top cuvees are increasingly sought after and the Sainte Anne, his excellent value NV, is a perennial favourite.

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).
