Pierre Cotton Cote de Brouilly 'Les Grilles' 2017

Former motorcycle mechanic turned vigneron, Pierre Cotton’s holdings now cover 5 hectares across some of Beaujolais’ most prestigious growing sites. Fruit for ‘Les Grilles’ comes from organically farmed Gamay rooted in yellow and pink granite, clay, and diorite soils, aged 11 months in used oak. The final wine is fleshy and chuggable, showing a unique sense of place. Stony minerality and thirst-quenching acidity make this one a go-to!

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.
