Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Les Teurons 2014

A velvety and succulent style of classic Burgundy with
touches of game, layered, long and elegant.


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, 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.


Vintage
Winter was mild and spring was dry. Early flowering at the start of June predicted
harvesting in the second half of September; 100 days after flowering. After two
beautiful warm months the unthinkable occurred; on 28th June the vines were struck
by a hailstorm, for the second year in a row. The vines suffered considerable
damage, especially the whites and significantly reduced yields in 2014. The summer
weather was average, with a cool August. September rescued the vintage with
warm weather and blue skies every day, allowing the grapes to achieve maturity


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 17 hl/ha. A green harvest takes place to
control yields and ensure the maximum concentration of flavours in the remaining
berries. Domaine Albert Morot is 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 with minimal intervention. The grapes were
destemmed and vinified in open vats using natural yeasts. The cap was submerged
or gently pumped over once per day. It was then aged for 14 months in oak, of
which 30% was new, during which time the wine went through slow malolactic
fermentation. It was not racked, but bottled by gravity without fining or filtration.


Tasting Note
A rich style of classic Burgundy with ripe black fruit and a touch of spice on the
beautifully textured palate. Concentrated and full flavoured with silky tannins through
to a full finish.
