Producer Note
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.
Vineyard
The premier cru vineyard of les Teurons is one of the most highly respected in
Beaune. Located in the Côte d'Or, the limestone soils are mixed with marl and give
the vines a favourable terroir. Domaine Albert Morot cultivates a hectare of vines
here on the gently sloping vineyard, which enjoys a south-easterly exposure
providing the vines with sunshine for most of the day. The vines have an average
age of 50 years and produce low yields of between 23 to 25 hl/ha. A green harvest
takes place to control yields and ensure the maximum concentration of flavours in
the remaining berries. 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.
Winemaking
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.
Tasting Note
A rich style of classic Burgundy with ripe wild strawberry fruit and a lovely texture.
Concentrated and full flavoured with silky tannins through to a full finish.
Serving Suggestion
Serve at 15 to 16°C with roasted red meats, rich casseroles, game dishes and
cheese.
