About The Wine

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.

He has adopted organic vineyard practices and a traditional approach to winemaking, opting for large format barrels for ageing and using a classic wooden press - making wines in a style reminiscent of the grower Champagnes of the 1950s.

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.

Critic Reviews


"Tense and crystalline in the glass, this is another wine in this range that is bursting at the seams with personality. The low dosage of 2.5 grams per liter lends a perceptible feeling of austerity. At times, a slightly vegetal (but not unpleasant) element comes through. I would prefer to drink this over the next few years. There will be plenty to admire over that time." - Antonio Galloni

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 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).
