Fruit for Cotton's Fleurie Poncié comes from a beautiful old Gamay vineyard facing south towards the village of Fleurie. The grapes are vinified exactly the same as Cotton’s other wines, which showcases the difference between his native terroir of Brouilly and the softer (dare we say refined?) wines from Fleurie. All of the red wines at Cotton are vinified with native yeasts (without SO2) in concrete tanks and aged underground in century-old foudres that were originally built for holding beer, then were repurposed in the 1950s and 1960s.
