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. In
January 2000, Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry (a great-nephew), who is an agronomist
engineer specializing in viticulture and oenology, took over the family estate. The
Domaine spreads over eight hectares of vineyards. These wines, exclusively Premier
Crus, are divided into eight appellations. Domaine Albert Morot consistently
produces elegant, top quality Burgundian wines which are highly rated around the
world. The Domaine has been certified as organic since the 2015 vintage.
Les Bressandes is a premier cru designated vineyard situated to the north of Beaune.
Domaine Albert Morot cultivates 1.27 hectares and the average age of the vines
here is 50 years old. Planted at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare, these old vines
produce a yield of 23 to 25 hl/ha. A green harvest takes place to control yields and
ensure the maximum concentration of flavours in the remaining berries. The soil is
predominantly limestone mixed with marl. Domaine Albert Morot are in conversion to
organic status and as such the vines are cultivated in vineyards where the
environment is respected and biodiversity is encouraged. The use of artificial
pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilisers is strictly prohibited, though certain
fertilisers (typically derived from animal or vegetable matter) are allowed. Many
biodynamic practices are also employed.
Harvested manually, the grapes underwent a careful manual sorting prior to a
traditional Burgundian vinification, in open vats using natural yeasts. The wine was
pumped over twice a day and was then aged for 14 months in oak, of which 30%
was new. The wine did not undergo any fining or filtration, prior to being bottled by
Attractive nose combining roasted cherry, raspberry and plums. A silky and fleshy
style of Beaune, finishing long with ripe tannins and vibrant red fruit flavours.
Served at 15-16°C this is a fantastic wine to pair with roast red meats, casseroles,
game and cheese.
