Domaine Albert Morot

In 1820, Albert Morot set up his negociant business in Beaune. Following the phyloxera epidemic, one of his successors bought its first vineyards and built the Chateau de la Creusotte with its cellars. Over the decades the holdings were expanded with particular emphasis on the Premier Crus of Beaune.

 

Between 1984 and 1999, Françoise Choppin, a great-grand-daughter of Albert Morot, managed the Domaine. She stopped all negociant activity in order to concentrate on its vineyards and winemaking.

 

In 2000 Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry (a great-nephew), who is an agronomist engineer specialised in viticulture and oenology, took over the family estate and is carrying on the family tradition that began five generations ago. His objective is to maintain the traditional spirit of the Domaine while being open to the new techniques that may produce higher quality grapes and wines while maintaining the respect of "terroir".

 

This is a small domaine with just 8 hectares of vines over 8 appellations. The vines have an average age of 40 years and produce grapes and wines that have different characters.

 

Picking is entirely by hand. The grapes are selected in the vineyard and put in small cases to avoid them being crushed and they are quickly transported to the winery. A second selection is done at the winery before the destemming. The yields are kept low (25-35 hl/ha) on account of a green harvest done in July and a severe selection done during picking. Vinification is traditional, in open vats. Then the wines are aged in French oak barrels (50 % new each year) for sixteen months. Bottling is done without fining and generally without filtration.
