Gamay, Beaujolais, France

A Brouilly so enveloping it practically picks you up and carries you on its shoulders to a far away haven. Since 2014 winemaker Pierre Cotton has been delivering organic and minimal intervention Beaujolais, but it wasn’t until the addition of partner Marine Bonnet, an agronomist specialized in viticulture, that the winery took its final form in 2020. (KIND OF) FUN FACT! Pierre and Marine usually blend the Bonnège parcel with the Les Mines parcel, but this year decided to make two separate cuvées as this is the last year that they will be able to harvest grapes from the Bonnège parcel – which their family has been leasing for the last two generations – due to its recent selling. In other words, get it while you can. Pristine, mid slope, old vines from silty soil and granite, brings poised acidity and a wine simply toppling over with aromatics. Bundled flowers, glycerol-y cherry cough syrup, scraping your knee in the dirt, twigs + stems, asphalt, black forest cake & a lean, acidic finish to prep you for the next sip. Enjoy with a well spiced terrine and butter soaked mushrooms.

Gamay, Beaujolais, France

A zero-zero bojo, as satisfying as Scooby Doo and the gang unmasking the bad guy at the end of each episode. Marine Bonnet and Pierre Cotton are organic and minimal intervention winemakers in the Brouilly region of Beaujolais. Marine is an agronomist and thanks to her, throughout their parcels in Brouilly they have replanted 500(!) trees in an effort to recreate lost habitat for animals, cooling shade & water retention. From two plots of old vines, on rich limestone clay and colluvium soil (a fancy term for soil and debris that accumulate at the base of a slope). The abundantly JuiCy gamay is whole cluster carbonically macerated to bring the fruitiness to fantastic new heights before being aged in casks for eight months to integrate and develop complexity. Maraschino cherry richness, basil stems, liquorice extract, obsidian pocket rock, shattered window minerality & caring acidity picks up the pieces. Enjoy alongside choruses of hearty laughter, this red is the crowd pleaser that takes acquaintances and turns them to lifelong pals.

Also available in a magnum size!
