Gamay for Cotton’s Cote de Brouilly comes from vines averaging 65 years in age, aged eight months in used oak. Organically farmed, vinified semi-carbonically, and produced sans soufre, the wine shows poppy red fruit flavors noted with earth and spice. Downright chuggable!

Gamay

The purplish grapey red of Beaujolais lately taken more seriously as a wine that punches above its weight. Perfectly fruity and yet in certain villages imbued with a stony mineral core.

Burgundy, France

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
