2008 Morot Albert, Beaune ToussaintsJul. 2010
Very pretty red fruit and dark red cherry. Good width and slightly grippy tannins – but not grainy. I find a lovely acid balance here.
2007 Morot Albert, Beaune Les TeuronsJul. 2010
Very fruity – a wide red fruit horizon. Depth of concentrated, almost jammy fruit – lower acidity after the 2008 – but intense and mineral too, particularly the finish. This is super for an 07.
2002 Morot Albert, Beaune Les TeuronsJul. 2010
This shows a lovely mix of bright and precise berries and currants. Mouth-filling concentration, just enough acidity and full of flavour. It’s a joy to drink now.. Dark-edged fruit, the structure comes in quite late in the mid-palate to make the point that you’ve called early – but the demeanour remains friendly…
2000 Morot Albert, Beaune Les TeuronsJul. 2010
More baked fruit aromas but the nose remains forward and fresh. Quite silky, tighter than the 2002, the structure still announces itself quite late though there is less of it. Here I find a little floral addition to the fruit.
1996 Morot Albert, MeursaultJul. 2005
Not so deep colour or nose, however, it’s wide pure fruit becomes more and more redcurrant – a wine to sniff and sniff. The palate is lower volume than the last wine (Lafon’s Volnay) but it’s balanced and shows bright acidity and there’s absolutely no rush to drink. Nice wine.
1989 Morot Albert, Savigny-lès-Beaune Les VergelessesFeb. 2003
Restrained nose still has surprisingly primary berry fruit. The palate has good volume and acidity but is less interesting than the nose. Almost good.
