Winemaker Notes

Located in the middle of the slope with a south-easterly exposure, the soil of this one-hectare plot (2.5 acres) is mainly limestone, enjoying a good balance of loams, sands and clay.Its name, “Les Teurons” (or “Les Theurons”), may be derived from Turno, meaning a small rise of land – a landscape feature that does exist at this location.These deeply-coloured wines are often full-bodied and powerful. Well balanced, they reveal great richness.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
This is a decadently forward, fruity expression of Beaune Teurons, one of Beaune's most acclaimed premier-cru vineyards. Powerful and sun drenched, the wine offers concentrated and rich black-plum and cassis flavors. A firm strike of acidity and ripe but densely packed tannins lend a taut, upright feel to the finish. It's best to approach from 2024. The wine should gain complexity well through 2035.
JM 92
Jasper Morris

From the upper part of the vineyard, bottled in November. Medium deep crimson purple. Whether the earlier bottling has calmed it down or not, this wine is less exotically seductive than some of the others. It is still sufficiently sumptuous to give pleasure but there is a little enjoyable restraint also, with some well-integrated tannins to finish. Good length.

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.”
