Bonnet & Cotton Les Grillés - AOC Cote de Brouilly 2020

Very steep, directly south facing vineyard, mid slope of the cote, very old vines, on yellow siliceous rocks. This is the geological anomaly of just 2 ha, previously unknown to geologists and soil scientists. For those who have enjoyed this cuvée previously, you know that the juice itself is one of the most powerful Beaujolais wines around. This vineyard makes structure, depth, intensity. But of course, the always soft touch from Pierre means it hasn't been over extracted, or turned into a more ambitious oaky something else. Always true to Gamay first, Pierre's wines always have supreme delicate drinkability, with site expression offered freely, nothing hidden by technique.
