...concentrated, ripe wine with the potential for great fruit as well as structure, this already offers bold fruits. With its tannins and juicy red-berry flavors...

Generous wood and menthol fight somewhat with the elegant and manifestly cool nose that displays essence of various red berries, humus and appealing floral hints...succulent mid-palate...naturally sweet, dusty and balanced finish...fine-grained tannins.

89-91Stephen Tanzer aromas of blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and black pepper. Riper and smoother in the middle palate...showing an obvious minty element.


Albert Morot

Albert Morot is a 20-acre domaine in Beaune. It was founded by the Morot family as a negociant in 1820 but also became a producer in 1890 with the purchase of vineyards. Today the estate is run by Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry, who inherited it from his uncle. The domaine has Premier Crus in Beaune and Savigny-les-Beaune.

Les Bressandes is a 50-acre Premier Cru vineyard on the northwestern edge the Beaune appellation, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. Les Bressandes is near the top of the slope. Clive Coates has written that wine from Les Bressandes and neighboring vineyards “have an extra roundness, richness and style” compared with some slightly more northern Beaune Premier Crus.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
