2015 Pierre Cotton Brouilly Magnum
Pierre has Brouilly in his veins, and he knows the trials and tribulations of working on this heroic hill-side, so steep it is scary to walk up, let alone work on the small bush vines scattered upon it.
He has an incredibly exciting future ahead of him having taken over the family domaine, which since the 2016 vintage has all been vinified naturally.
The 2016 Brouilly is classic Cotton. 100% Gamay from a single vineyard, Les Mines. Vines are 65 years old planted in pink granite. Wine is fermented semi-carbonic in concrete tanks with no added Sulfur. The wine is classic dark fruited Brouilly, succulent but with understated power.
