Domaine Albert Morot has been synonymous with the Beaune appellation since 1820. Albert Morot founded this benchmark property as a negociant, and in the wake of the phylloxera epidemic the family began buying their own vineyard parcels in the Côte de Beaune and built the charming Château de la Creusotte to house their cellars. The estate was passed down through the generations, and Françoise Choppin was the first to focus entirely on the vineyards and the estate-bottled wines.
“A more reserved and more deeply pitched nose exhibits notably more earth and forest floor character that add breadth to the notes of dark cherry and currant scents. There is fine detail and a subtle minerality to the medium weight flavors that also possess a sleek mouth feel, all wrapped in a complex if once again an ever-so-slightly dry finale. I would once more suggest that this would be best drunk on the younger side for its fruit.”
