The Brouilly comes from family holdings just outside of Odenas at lower elevation than the Côte de Brouilly. The Brouilly tends to be a bit lighter and fresher. Brouilly was the second wine that Pierre produced, and decided to stick with the same name - 100% Cotton. Of course, all of the other wines from the domaine are also made 100% by Pierre and Marine, but the name only stuck for the first two wines. All of the red wines at Cotton are vinified with native yeast and without SO2 in concrete tanks, and then aged underground in century-old large foudres that were originally build for holding beer and then repurposed in the 1950s and 60s.
