About The Wine

Jo Landron's sparkling has the label of a party bubbles but this is seriously tasty stuff, a Champagne-method wine of great character and length.

It's blend of Folle Blanche and Pinot Noir, Jo having worked out that Melon de Bourgogne, the main grape of Muscadet, did not make a great sparkling wine base.

With 24 months on lees, then bottled with a low 5g dosage, it's a wonderful combination of racy citrus and stonefruit, and richer Pinot Noir red berries, with just a hint of smoky, bready yeastiness.

You couldn't ask for a better value quality French sparkling wine.

About Domaines Landron

The effervescent Jo Landron might be the best vigneron in Muscadet. He certainly has the best moustache, looking like a biodynamic Merv Hughes.

Building upon the family estate steadily extended by his father and uncle, Jo gradually moved his vineyards towards organic sand biodynamics, and the Domaine was among the earliest to receive certification in the region. He is also known as pioneer in bottling single-site, terroir-specific Muscadets, a true rarity.

He releases a range of outstanding whites and sparklings of depth and concentration, graphite-heavy vineyards and tiny yields helping infuse the wines with a rare minerality. An avant-garde, low-input champion of the region.

The Wine Doctor

" As always this is officially non-vintage (although Jo tells me it is 2017) and is mostly Folle Blanche. It is made in the extra brut style using the méthode traditionnelle. Jo will add a little dosage at disgorgement during the first 24 months, but later disgorgements such as this one receive no such support. It has a fragrant floral nose, filled with chalk, orange and peach, in a ripe and expressive style. The palate maintains an even more exotic stance, with plush fruit, the wine's broad texture here offset by an incisive mousse and punchy acidity. A lovely style." - Chris Kissack (The Wine Doctor)

    Delicous and light

    We came across this sparkling through a restaurant experience and we love the lightness with a bit of earthiness to it.

    Also knowing that the grapes are biodynamically grown and hand harvested is a plus for us. Highly recommend!

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 02 8376 8775 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).
