Winemaker Notes

Upon release, the Beaune Bressandes Premier Cru is a very subtle wine with a dense, bold body and beautiful silkiness.

They go well with roast meat, some fish (roast monkfish with bacon, etc), and some cheeses (eg Cîteaux, Saint Nectaire, Reblochon)

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 92
Burghound.com
A reserved, pure, cool and airy nose offers up notes of cherry, red pinot fruit, earth and wet stone. There is good volume to the utterly delicious and fleshy flavors where the supporting tannins are clearly much finer than those of the Aigrots, all wrapped in a classy, pure and refined finish. A classic Bressandes of style and grace that should repay 10 to 12 years of cellar time. Well worth your attention.
V 92
Vinous
Good deep, bright red. Musky red cherry and raspberry aromas are complicated by marzipan and a hint of soil. Sweet, intense and vinous, with captivating inner-mouth perfume and integrated acidity. The firm tannins hit the palate late, allowing this cool, energetic, very pure wine to blossom on the back. Tannins are firm but not at all dry. A superb vintage for this bottling, and built for a graceful evolution in bottle.

Albert Morot, France
Domaine Albert Morot produces 10 appellations, farmed organically on 8 hectares (20 acres), which presents Beaune and its terroirs through a common denominator: Full-bodied wines with agreeably fruity aromas; pure, racy wines that express each terroir‘s distinctive qualities. The domaine also boasts one of the best plots in Savigny-lès-Beaune and a small Pommard production. Two traditional Burgundy grapes are used, Pinot Noir for red wines and Chardonnay for white wines. The vine stocks are planted at one-meter intervals, a planting density of 10,000 vines per hectare (4,000 vines per acre). After the last leaves have fallen, the vines are pruned using the traditional Burgundy pruning method, “guyot”. The soil is mounded at the beginning of winter and then removed in spring. It is then worked regularly to prevent weeds taking root. Because the domaine is certified Organic, no weed killers are used. Starting in August, the grass is allowed to compete with the vines, boosting concentration in the grapes. Only two products are used to prevent disease: copper and Sulphur. These products are not absorbed by the plant; they remain on the surface to form a protective barrier against mildew and powdery mildew. Green harvesting and regular thinning of leaves are carried out in July to favor ripening and concentration in the grapes, and to reduce the risk of disease as much as possible.

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.”
