Structured and spicy – yet classic – Bojo.
This 100% Gamay from the Côte de Brouilly epitomizes everything we know and love about Beaujolais. The Cotton Rouge was vinified semi-carbonic in concrete tanks without any added sulfur, prior to being aged for 8 months in used oak foudres. The Cotton Rouge is the flagship wine of Pierre Cotton’s domaine, and is perfect for anyone looking to discover how serious Beaujolais can be.
- 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.
- Pierre 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.
- Marine is an agronomist who specializes in viticulture.
