Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
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.
BH 90
Burghound.com
An attractively fresh and bright nose features notes of pretty red berries, plum and distinct earth scents that are also trimmed in noticeable wood. The rich, delicious and solidly intense mineral-driven flavors possess fine depth and length on the moderately firm finish where the wood influence telegraphed by the nose reappears.

Albert Morot, France
Domaine Albert Morot has been synonymous with AOC Beaune since 1820. This benchmark domaine has been continuously run by founder Albert Morot’s descendants. Since 2000, Albert’s great, great-grand-nephew Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry has run the family business and ushered it into a new era. Geoffroy and his team farm 8 hectares almost entirely in Premier Cru vineyards. The vines average 50 years of age and yields are kept low, between 25 to 35 hectoliters per hectare.

Beaune Wine

Burgundy, France

While the city represents the epicenter of wine production in Burgundy, the term, “Beaune” also refers to the specific sub-appellation of the greater Côte de Beaune, whose vineyards climb up the pastoral slopes that border the city to its west. Originally founded as a Roman camp by Julius Caesar, the city of Beaune eventually became the seat of the dukes of Burgundy until the 13th century. Today it is home to top négociants such as Louis Jadot, Joseph Drouhin, Louis Latour, and Bouchard Père et Fils.

The appellation, dominated by Pinot Noir plantings, represents a lovely and charming place to begin to understand red Burgundy. Its sandy soils create light and supple, floral driven Pinot Noir. These wines are designed to be enjoyed within five to 10 years. The vineyards of Beaune span a broad swath of Premier Crus from Savigny-lès-Beaune to its border with Pommard.

Chardonnay acreage here has been increasing here in the more recent years.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
