Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Teurons 2016 (0.375L)
- Red Wine
Here too there is enough wood and menthol characters to remark upon framing the denser if less elegant aromas of red cherry, dark raspberry and forest floor nuances. There is excellent volume and mid-palate concentration with an abundance of dry extract that does a nice job of buffering the noticeably firmer tannic spine shaping the powerful, youthfully austere and ever-so-mildly rustic finale. - AM
Albert Morot is a family-owned estate situated in the Cote De Beaune wine region. The domaine comprises 8 hectares (20 acres) of vineyards, including plots in seven Premier Cru climats in Beaune Les Teurons, Les Bressandes, Les Toussaints, Les Greves, Les Cent Vignes, Les Aigrots and Les Marconnets and one in Savigny-les-Beaune, Bataillere. The estate was originally established as a negociant business in 1820 by Albert Morot. The company bought its first vines in the 1880s, and built the cellars, Chateau de Creusotte, in 1898. Morot's great-granddaughter Francoise Choppin inherited the estate in 1984 and stopped the negociant business, instead turning all focus to the estate-owned vineyard parcels. In 2000, Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry assumed the management of the domaine.
