The Brouilly comes from family holdings just outside of Odenas at lower elevation than the Côte de Brouilly. The Brouilly tends to be a bit lighter and fresher. Brouilly was the second wine that Pierre produced, and decided to stick with the same name - 100% Cotton. Of course, all of the other wines from the domaine are also made 100% by Pierre and Marine, but the name only stuck for the first two wines. All of the red wines at Cotton are vinified with native yeasts and without SO2 in concrete tanks, then age underground in century-old foudres that were originally built for holding beer, then were repurposed in the 1950s and 1960s.

*** 

After working as a motorcycle mechanic for a short period of time, Pierre Cotton returned to his roots - no pun intended - and reclaimed one hectare of vines from his family’s plot. Pierre currently works with his partner, Marine Bonnet, who joined the domaine in 2020. Cotton’s terroir is located within a unique parcel of the Côte de Brouilly that consists of a special pink granite and diorite, which Pierre claims is found nowhere else within the region.
