Les Marconnets is a 1er Cru climat of the Beaune appellation, which extends over the two communes of Beaune and Savigny. Domaine Albert Morot's tiny plot of 0.67 hectares sits at the top of the slope, facing south-east. It benefits from a complex limestone soil, which is combined with loam, sand, and clay elements and produces wines of power and aromatic complexity. The Guyot pruned vines have an average age of 50 years and are planted at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare. A green harvest takes place in July and meticulous sorting at harvest ensures the yields are kept low at 25 to 35 hectolitres per hectare. The vineyard is certified organic; the soil is carefully ploughed and the biodiversity of the vineyard is respected.

In 1820, Albert Morot set up his negociant business in Beaune. Between 1984 and 1999 the estate was managed by Francoise Choppin, who discontinued the negociant activity in order to concentrate on its vineyards and winemaking. The domain covers eight hectares of vineyard, divided into 10 appellations, and is certified organic from the 2015 vintage. In January 2000, Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry, an agronomist engineer specializing in viticulture and oenology, took over the estate from his great aunt. Adopting a minimal intervention approach, Geoffroy crafts wines of ultimate purity which are highly rated around the world.
