From the importer: "Located just next to the winery in Odenas, Cotton’s parcel of Côte de Brouilly is on a unique terroir of “corne verte” that Pierre says is found nowhere else in the Beaujolais. Corne Verte is a blend of pink granite and diorite. The Côte de Brouilly 100% Cotton was the first cuvée Pierre made, and remains the emblematic wine of the domaine - a structured powerful gamay that magically retains the easy drinking bonhomie of the best wines of the Beaujolais."
100% Gamay from the Bonneges vineyard, planted in the 1950s on "Corne Verte," a blend of yellow and pink granite, clay, and diorite soils. Grapes are hand-harvested and fermented carbonically using wild yeasts. Aged in wooden foudre and barrels for 8 months. Unfined, unfiltered with no added SO2.
