Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes 2017

A well-structured and earthy red Burgundy with savoury
strawberry and red cherry fruit finishing on a leafy note.
Producer Note
In 1820, Albert Morot set up his negociant business in Beaune. Between 1984 and 1999
the estate was managed by Françoise Choppin, who discontinued the negociant
activity in order to concentrate on its vineyards and winemaking. The domain covers
eight hectares of vineyard, is divided into 10 appellations and is certified organic from the
2015 vintage. In January 2000, Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry, an agronomist engineer
specialising 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.

Vineyard
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 maximum flavour concentration in the fruit. The soil is predominantly
limestone mixed with marl. The vineyards are certified organic; 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.
Winemaking
Harvested manually, the grapes underwent careful manual sorting prior to a
traditional Burgundian vinification. The grapes were destemmed and fermented in
open vats using natural yeasts. The wine underwent pigeage (cap punch-downs) or
pumping-over, once per day. Ageing took place 14 months in oak, of which 30% was
new where it underwent slow malolactic conversion. The wine was bottled by gravity
without fining or filtration.
