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 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 is 50 years old. Planted at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare, these old vines produce a yield of just 23 to 25 hectolitres per hectare. An annual green harvest controls yields and ensures the maximum concentration of flavour in the berries. The soil is predominantly limestone mixed with marl. The vineyards are in conversion to organic status; the vines are cultivated with the utmost respect for the environment and biodiversity is encouraged. The use of artificial pesticides, herbicides and fungicides is strictly prohibited. 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 gravity.
