Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Teurons 2015
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
The very ripe aromas of plum, cassis and plenty of earth elements are trimmed in evident wood and menthol notes. This is admirably concentrated with seemingly buckets of dry extract that imparts a lavish mouth feel to the velvety, firm, youthfully austere and powerful finale. This overtly muscular effort is also going to require at least a moderate amount of patience before it will be accessible and like the Bressandes should ultimately reward 12 to 15 years of cellaring. -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.
