AOP Brouilly, the difficult Hill in Beaujolais
Pierre started in Beaujolais and then moved all over France to learn winemaking. His wines unlike a lot of Beaujolais , are aged in cement vs. a quicker release. Beaujolais usually known for less aged brighter reds, Cotton bucked the trend with some aging, allowing the vibrancy of the fruit to really shine through. In Addition to this, he has been purchasing land on the Brouilly hill, giving him better drainage and more sunlight, allowing more sugars and minerality through his wines.
