Pierre Cotton Beaujolais 'Le Pre' 2017

Former motorcycle mechanic turned vigneron, Pierre Cotton’s holdings now cover 5 hectares across some of Beaujolais’ most prestigious growing sites. Fruit for ‘Le Pré’ comes from an organically farmed 0.8 hectare plot, semi-carbonically macerated in concrete and aged six months in used oak. The final wine is juicy and textured, with zippy acidity and structured backbone. Only 180 cases produced.

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.

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.
