Domaine Albert Morot has been one of our long standing imports. Run by the charming Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry, this small domaine of only 8 hectares, produces a fine range of Beaune Premier Crus from old vines in some of the commune's best vineyards.
Great care is taken both in the vineyard and winery to ensure the terroir and freshness of the wines are retained.
 
Last year I tasted the 2016's at Domaine Albert Morot. They are classical Beaune reds from a very fine vintage.
As with all producers in Beaune and Savigny, Morot was badly affected by the frost in late April 2016. No wine was produced from Grèves, Marconnets, Dessus des Marconnets, or the white Savigny vineyard. Overall, the estate produced 23 hl/ha.

Harvesting began on 21 September. All grapes were destemmed in 2016. About 30% new oak is used, a combination of Chassin Père & Fils and François Frères, and the toast is medium.
Today we feature these 2016's. Considering the problems with frost in 2016 and extreme losses in the Cote de Beaune I am simply amazed at how the prices at this lovely small domaine have remained remarkably constant. 
 
All wines are now certified biologique.

We offer our remaining stock at a 15% discount today. This is a great address to explore the intricacies of the 1er Crus of Beaune. Mix and match as you please.

Beaune 1er Cru Les Cent-Vignes 2016
Normal Price $114.95
Special $97.50
10 bottles left

Morot Cent Vignes Label
The Fine Wine Review: The nose of the Cent Vignes has lovely, pure dark fruits and a roundness. The mouth is smooth and pure with dense dark berry fruit, length, medium weight, and excellent balance. 92 Points
Wine Spectator: 
This is silky, boasting cherry, strawberry and floral flavors, with flashes of mineral and underbrush. Vibrant acidity keeps this flowing, while dusty tannins try to apply the brakes. Best from 2022 through 2035. 92 Points
Darren Harris: Planted in 1957. Deep red. Nose of very deep red fruits with lots of cherry and woody spices including cinnamon. Excellent acidity provides lift and freshness. The tannins are there but are well coated by rich, low cropped old vine fruit ensuring an an excellent mouth feel.

Beaune 1er Cru Les Toussaints 2016
Normal Price $114.95
Special $97.50
13 bottles left
Morot Toussaints Label
The Fine Wine Review: From a vineyard sandwiched between Cent Vignes and Grèves, the Beaune-Toussaints is a bit broader than the Cent Vignes, but shows similar dark berry fruits. 91 Points
Burghound: 
This also sports moderately generous wood influence on the spiced plum liqueur-like aromas. There is fine delineation to the more refined medium-bodied flavors that are a combination of focused power and a lovely minerality, all wrapped in a dense, serious and once again sneaky long finish. This too is going to require at least some bottle age as it's pretty tightly wound today. 2023+. 91 Points
Darren Harris: Planted 1968. Tiny yield of 16hl/ha in 2016. Whole clusters but no stems. Dark colour. A silky nose of dark fruit with notes of what I would have thought were stems. Really complex and very appealing. The palate is long, spicy and very fine. Discernable but refined tannins. Serious stuff, and a standout in 2016.

Beaune 1er Cru Les Aigrots 2016
Normal Price $114.95
Special $97.50
38 bottles left

Morot AIgrots label
The Fine Wine Review: The Aigrots is quite mineral with blackberry fruit, smoothness of texture, and round tannins. This wine drinks well now and also has good aging potential. 92+ Points
Wine Spectator: Black cherry, black currant, violet, earth and mineral flavors are buoyed by a vibrant structure in this sleek red. Silky and succulent, with a lingering, chalk- and stone-inflected finish. Best from 2022 through 2035.
 92 Points
Darren Harris: Red-puple in colour. More lift and greater structure than the Toussaints before it. Once again what looks like a touch of stems. Fresh and bright, the fruit a little lighter on its feet but very deeply flavoured and multi-layered. Concentrated, balanced and full of style. The tannins are once again beauifully coated. I like this a lot.

Beaune 1er Cru Les Bressandes 2016
Normal Price $125.95
Special $106.95
16 bottles left

Morot Bressandes
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. 92 Points
Burghound: 
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. 2023+. 91 Points
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.

Beaune 1er Cru Les Teurons 2016
Normal Price $125.95
Special $106.95
37 bottles left
Morot Teurons Label
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. 93 Points
Burghound
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. 91 Points
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.

Stock up whilst you can. Burgundy of such quality at this price is seldom this affordable.

Smith-Woodhouse Port Label
Smith Woodhouse Vintage Port 2003 
6 bottles available
For the Love of Port: Opaque dark ruby-purple with citrus, spice and violets on the nose. SW delivers a drier fruit profile, is medium-full bodied, and exhibits fleshy plum and cranberry flavors which are texturally pleasing. This is a well-made big and balanced wine. Astringent tannins stand out beneath the big fruit and assert themselves on the developed and lengthy aftertaste. This is a cellar worthy Smith Woodhouse VP. 4,100 cases produced. 94 Points
Jancis Robinson: 
Purplish crimson. Vigorous, savoury, not especially sweet. Grown-up vintage port. Lovely weight and integration. Already hints at complex flavours to come. Great charge of all the elements needed. Later note: Very fresh and vigorous - even slightly green. A little bit simple. Not quite enough tannin or concentration. Symingtons' less famous but often high achieving label. 18/20

Grahams Label

Graham's Vintage Port 2003
5 bottles available
Vinous,Stephen Tanzer:
Deep, saturated ruby. Initially reticent aromas of dark chocolate and nuts; showed a high-pitched eucalyptus quality as it opened in the glass. Then almost shockingly huge and rich in fruit, with wonderfully lush, complex flavors of cassis, violet, minerals, spices, flowers and exotic chocolate. The tannins are seductively sweet, yet the finish boasts terrific focus, not to mention outstanding persistence. In terms of sheer palate-saturating flavor and texture, this runs a close second to Fonseca among these 2003s. For long aging. 95 Points
Winedoctor: Another pop at the 2003, tasted last only six months ago. It still has, like all the 2003's, an amazing colour. And the nose is stunning, simply bursting with summer fruits. The palate has a massive concentration of tannin, acidity, spices and fruit, all wrapped up in a seductive texture. Superb richness and vibrancy. Excellent wine. Needs 15-20 years. I'm glad to say a consistent score. 19+/20
For the Love of Port:
Fantastic fragrance of freshly crushed grape exhibiting great purity and seasoned by scents of menthol and esteva. Dark fruit flavors prevail, bright, rich and concentrated. Although a powerful Port, its refined tannins and sublime texture lead up to a most stunning finish. Drink now to 2048. 9,000 cases produced. Graham's excelled in this hot vintage! 95 Points

Dow 2003 label
Dow's Vintage Port 2003
5 bottles available
Wine Doctor: Refined. Elegant. This has great style. Chocolate and smoke. Damsons. This has great purity. Beautiful weight and texture. Stunning finesse here. Wonderful balance. Superb, ripe tannins coated in a seamless layer of fruit. Great potential. Possibly wine of the vintage. 19+/20

For the Love of Port: The epitome of an 'impenetrable appearance'. Rose petals
and violets waft from within the glass and the nose is just fantastic. Seemingly more fruity than typical for Dow, the palate provides powerful plum and cassis with a mouth feel that takes a minute to figure out. Everything is big here: the fruit is ripe and concentrated, the tannins are chewy and astringent, while the acidity acts as the life support system at its core. No reason to touch your Dow's unless the curiosity has forced your hand, otherwise leave these be - for 2-3 decades or more. I still say it is the best young Dow VP I have ever tasted and that is saying a lot! 95 Points
