Winemaker Notes

This 1.27-hectare plot (3 acres) is located in the middle of the slope with a south-easterly exposure. Its soil enjoys a good balance of limestone, loams and clay.The plot may be named for a previous owner – a 13th-century canon, Johannis Bressand. The Aloxe-Corton Les Bressandes Climat is thought to have belonged to three elderly spinsters originally from Bresse.In the mouth, these very subtle wines present a dense, bold body and beautiful silkiness.

Critical Acclaim

BH 93
Burghound.com
This is also attractively floral in character with its array of violet, lavender and rose petal nuances on the softly spicy black cherry liqueur scents. Once again, the medium weight flavors possess a really lovely texture that tightens up on the dusty, firm and serious finale that is slightly better-balanced. Lovely and worth your consideration.
Barrel Sample: 90-93
JM 92
Jasper Morris

A pink-purple tinge to the colour at the edges. Darker purple in the middle. Quite a sumptuous bouquet of super ripe fruit. Three tanks, one of which has been vinified with whole bunches. Dense succulent dark fruit but nothing cooked. Firm tannins right at the back, but easily enough fruit to cover them. In the sunny style of 2020 yet in balance – but you will need to wait. Barrel Sample: 90-92

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.

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.”
