No champagne grower is as renowned or as influential as Anselme Selosse.

About The Wine

Anselme Selosse is one of the most revolutionary figures in the world of wine today.

The ultimate iconoclast, Anselme took the concepts and traditions that made the best wines of Burgundy and the Rhone Valley so iconic - that it takes great fruit to make transcendent  wines, and expression of terroir is paramount - and brought those ideas to his family's vineyards in Champagne.

His cuveés are now hunted like the rarest of birds across the planet. 

The Version Originale is a powerful, idiosyncratic blend of three vintages of Chardonnay from three villages: Avize, Oger and Cramant.

The vintages that combine together are always mature so as to best articulate the power and complexity of these hillside vineyards. It's a delicious, mercurial, fascintating Champagne unlike anything else in the region.

On The Producer

“No champagne grower is as renowned or as influential as Anselme Selosse. Whether directly or indirectly, he has inspired an entire generation of young winegrowers in the region, and among consumers, his champagnes have become some of the most sought-after wines in the world. As with many wines that seek to push their boundaries, Selosse’s champagnes are not without controversy—some believe them to be at the pinnacle of what can be achieved in the region, while others find them incomprehensible. Regardless, it’s undeniable that these are highly original champagnes, and wines of intense personality.”

Peter Liem, ChampagneGuide.net

“The "madman of Avize"may turn out to be the "prophet of Avize" - by which I mean that it is hard to think of a single individual in Champagne whose work (though by no means uniformly admired) is more influential than that of Anselme Selosse. Fastidious viticulture (which happens to be biodynamic); ripeness levels previously thought unattainable in the region; radically non-interventionist methods; the use of a wide variety of containers and long ageing are some of the lodestars of méthode, Selosse. The veneer of eccentricity conceals a sharp and scholarly intelligence, and if the future of Champagne is truly going to one in which terroir plays more of a role then the region as a whole will have to pay more attention of Selosse and less to it's accountants and brand managers. "We need a hundred Selosses," as Daniel Lorson of the CIVC puts it.”

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

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).
