Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Toussaint 2006
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
Red and black raspberry aromas trimmed in subtle notes of wood and damp earth merge into rich and a bit more refined mineral-suffused flavors that are also delicious with even better intensity and finishing detail. This is really a lovely effort as it combines fine complexity and excellent length. This could surprise to the upside as the underlying material is really quite fine. - 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.
