If there's a true rock n' roller in Beaujolais today it has got to be Pierre Cotton. With his family boasting a succession of five generations of winemakers going back to 1856, Pierre just straight up went and became a motorcycle mechanic, cos well...you can't tell him what to do. When it came to putting his hand to wine this attitude very much carried on. Taking a different direction to the more traditional practices of the family Domaine Sanvers et Cotton, Pierre found and then intensely pursued a passion for organic practices and a strict natural approach in the winery. This dudejolais now has small plantings in Brouilly, Cote de Brouilly, Regnie and Beaujolais to which he tends with the utmost love and attention.

Le Pre's a pretty damn unique little number, coming up off uncommonly seen sandy soils in Charentais with vine age ranging from 90 to 25 years, the equilibrium between power and finesse is astounding. In the winery Pierre really doesn't mess about with the wines, he lets it take its natural journey. Starting with only indigenous yeasts in concrete tanks with partial carbonic-maceration, then moving to seasoned foudre and barrel, all neutral, no added sulphur, no fining, no filtering. I could honestly ramble on about this debutant legend for hours...
