Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Les Teurons 2017

A velvety and succulent style of classic Burgundy with
touches of the 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, 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.
2016 was generally a challenging vintage due to damaging hailstorms and
widespread frosts which resulted in lower yields. Fine weather in September helped to
rescue this vintage. The fruit that remained was of good quality, without extremes of
acidity, alcohol or fruit concentration, resulting in a classic style of Burgundy.
The 1er 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 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 is
certified organic 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 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 a slow malolactic conversion.
The wine 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.
