Domaine Albert Morot Beaune 1er Cru Les Teurons 2016 (5236)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Beaune - Beaune
Pinot Noir

Vinous, Stephen Tanzer: (from barrel) Bright, dark red. Medicinal black cherry, spices, licorice and a whiff of game on the nose. The richest, sweetest and most pliant of these 2016s, showing the best palate presence and volume of the range but still youthfully backward. Finishes with dark fruit and licorice notes, substantial dusty tannins and saliva-inducing salinity. This wine will need aging but even today it's neither dry nor hard on the back end. 90-92

The Fine Wine Review

Last in this group, the Teurons is dense and pure with dark fruit and excellent penetration. There’s more tannin showing here than in the others, not surprising, as this wine is from the southern part of Beaune, not far from Pommard.



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. At least some patience strongly advised.


Darren Harris

Expansive nose with dark cherry, spice. liquorice and minerally earth. The palate is rich, powerful and chewy displaying more tannin and muscle than the other wines here. Plenty of extract and destined for a long life.
