Motorcycle mechanic turned vigneron? You bet. Pierre Cotton’s wines are just as badass as his prior bike-focused career. Cotton is one of Beaujolais’ freshest new faces and is already shaking things up for the better. After two years spent in the Loire Valley, Cotton returned home to his native region and purchased one small hectare of vines in the Côte de Brouilly. Since 2015, Cotton has added a few hectares to his holdings, implementing organic farming and minimal intervention practices in the cellar. The resulting wines are outrageously delicious and extremely limited in production. Don’t hold your breath - they will disappear quickly.
