The 1er cru vineyard of les Teurons is one of the most highly respected in Beaune. Located in the Côte d'Or, the limestone soils are mixed with marl and give the vines a favourable terroir. Domaine Albert Morot cultivates a hectare of vines here on the gently sloping vineyard, which enjoys a south-easterly exposure providing the vines with sunshine for most of the day. The vines have an average age of 50 years and produce low yields of 17 hl/ha. A green harvest takes place to control yields and ensure the maximum concentration of flavours in the remaining berries. Domaine Albert Morot is certified organic and as such the vines are cultivated in vineyards where the environment is respected and biodiversity is encouraged. The use of artificial pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and fertilisers is strictly prohibited, though certain fertilisers (typically derived from animal or vegetable matter) are allowed. Many biodynamic practices are also employed.

Harvested manually, the grapes underwent a careful, manual sorting prior to a traditional Burgundian vinification with minimal intervention. The grapes were destemmed and vinified in open vats using natural yeasts. The cap was submerged or gently pumped over once per day. It was then aged for 14 months in oak, of which 30% was new, during which time the wine went through slow malolactic conversion. The wine was not racked, but bottled by gravity without fining or filtration.

Albert Morot

In 1820, Albert Morot set up his negociant business in Beaune. Between 1984 and 1999 the estate was managed by Françoise Choppin, who discontinued the negociant activity in order to concentrate on its vineyards and winemaking. The domain covers eight hectares of vineyard, divided into 10 appellations and is certified organic from the 2015 vintage. In January 2000, Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry, an agronomist engineer specialising in viticulture and oenology, took over the estate from his great aunt. Adopting a minimal intervention approach, Geoffroy crafts wines of ultimate purity which are highly rated around the world.
