Appellation

Cote de Brouilly

Variety

Gamay

The combination of pink, yellow, and red granite is only found in this 1.5 hectare parcel called 'Les Grillés,' or The Grids, which refers to the various layers of rock, located on the slope just next to the winery in Odénas. 'Les Grillés' was the first single-vineyard parcel Cotton produced and is often the richest wine of each vintage. All of the red wines at Cotton are vinified with native yeasts (without SO2) in concrete tanks and aged underground in century-old foudres that were originally built for holding beer, then were repurposed in the 1950s and 1960s.
