Pierre Cotton Bonnège - AOC Brouilly 2019
Old vines on silty soil and granite, mid slope. This has more earth, spice and rusticity.
Typically, the domaine only produces one wine from Brouilly: 100% Cotton, a blend of two parcels (Les Mines and Bonnège). In 2020, Pierre and Marine decided to make two separate cuvées because this is the last year that they will be able to harvest grapes from the Bonnège parcel, which their family has been leasing for two generations (it was recently sold and reclaimed by the new owner). To make things even more confusing - because these ephemeral cuvées only exist for one year – they decided to use the 100% Cotton labels, so the indication will only be on the back label.
