About The Wine

In 1984, Jean and Chantal Berthet-Bondet purchased a vineyard that had spent the past half-century in neglect.

They built a small winery with an eye to producing elegant sous-voile wines. Since then, they have become important members of the community, with Jean becoming mayor of the town and also being named president of the Syndicate of Producers of Château-Chalon.

A softly spoken, gentle soul, Jean's wines are as precise as and complex as the man himself.

This is his sparkling wine made in the tradition of a Cremant. It's full-bodied, rich and cut with the region's signature saline kick. A slightly wild, yet beautifully composed sparkling wine that is perfect if you're looking for fizz with a point of difference.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Chantal and Jean Berthet-Bondet, both agricultural engineers, settled in Château-Chalon in 1984 and the first grape harvests took place in 1985. Not being born either of the winemaker family, the acquisition of plots and know-how is done gradually. The farm currently has 11 hectares of vines and converted to organic farming in 2010.

The house which houses the estate dates from the 16th century and is supposed to be the home of a steward of the Château-Chalon abbey. This house known as the "chatelain" or "prieuré" is adorned with arms surmounting the entrance door representing noble families Franche-Comté to which many abbesses of Château-Chalon belonged. The property was also the location of the shooting of the Spanish film in 1965, Bernard Clavel's novel adapted by Jean Prat for television.

    Delicious point of difference

    Opened with friends at Christmas. Those would claimed not to like champagne style loved this wine.

    Elegant, well structured without the mouth puckering impact of many champers. Excellent quality.

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).
