Tasting Notes

Le Pre is the only single vineyard release from Pierre Cotton and is somewhat of an experiment to see what isolating a snapshot of his terroir can produce.
Fruit for 'Le Pre' grows in sandy, granitic soils at the foot of steep slopes, aged in foudre for six months. Only 4000 bottles are produced annually; organically farmed, vinified semi-carbonically, and produced without any additions. - Importer Note

Pierre is now the 5 generation of winemakers in the Sanvers & Cotton families to take the reigns. The family run Domaine, and the family home, sit smack-bang, mid-slope, right in the middle of the hill side known as the Côte de Brouilly, the highest and most visually spectacular of all of the Beaujolais' crus.

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. But Pierre did not rest on the previous generation; he left, explored, learned, working for winemakers all across France. During his travels, he confirmed his desire to pursue natural viticulture and make natural wines. He now has an incredibly exciting future ahead and a desire to make zero-entrant wines, but with lots of responsibility as he has now taken over the whole domaine since the 2016 vintage, all vinified naturally. We think he is a bit of a star in the making, and a great young bloke with a curious mind and courageous heart. Being an unassuming gentle giant, he has the head and the shoulders necessary to do big things. - Importer Note
