Patrick Cotton Pat ‘Jo’ Cotton Brouilly 12pk 2016
Inspired by the purity of Marcel Lapierre’s wines, Patrick ‘Jo’ Cotton, moved away from the conventional winemaking of his father to make wines in a more natural way.
After inheriting his father’s Metayage vineyard contracts, Patrick convinced the vineyard owners to convert their farming to organic practices. With extremely small yields, and no one for Patrick to pass on his contract to, the owners have taken back the vineyards, and Patrick has been forced to retire following the 2017 vintage. We are both excited and saddened to be bringing these wines into Australia for the first time, knowing that we will only have a few years to sell these exceptionally beautiful wines before his label ceases to exist.
