Albert Morot is a family-owned estate situated in the Côte De Beaune wine region. The company bought its first vines in the 1880s, and built the cellars, Château de Creusotte, in 1898. Morot's great-granddaughter Françoise Choppin inherited the estate in 1984 focusing to the estate-owned vineyard parcels. On average, Albert Morot's vines are 45 years old. The vineyards are farmed using organic viticultural practices and yields are kept low. Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed prior to vinification. The wines are aged in 50 percent new oak barriques for 18 months prior to being bottled without filtration.
