Domaine Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes 2016 (5233)

Domaine Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes 2016 (5233)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Beaune - Beaune
Pinot Noir

Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: (from barrel) (the estate had a close-to-normal crop of 35 hectoliters per hectare in Bressandes): Dark red with ruby highlights. Slightly cool aromas of blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and black pepper. Riper and smoother in the middle palate than the nose suggests but still quite dark and medicinal for this wine, showing an obvious minty element. There's no shortage of texture here but the finish is ultimately a bit clenched, with dusty tannins apparent today. I was surprised to hear that this wine was less touched by hail than most of the estate's other vineyards. 89-91

The Fine Wine Review

The Bressandes is smooth and round with some breadth and dark fruits. It’s a very good expression of the terroir of the Bressandes vineyard.



Generous wood and menthol fight somewhat with the elegant and manifestly cool nose that displays essence of various red berries, humus and appealing floral hints. The middle weight flavors aren’t quite as dense but they’re finer still with a succulent mid-palate before concluding in a naturally sweet, dusty and balanced finish that flashes a touch of youthful austerity. Lovely stuff and particularly so thanks to the relatively fine-grained tannins. 91/2023+


Darren Harris

Bright garnet. Dark fruits, liquorice and woody spices. Not quite as open today but once can see the layers before the wine concludes with dusty, fine grained tannins and very good length.
