Notes from the Producer:

"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.

This 1.27-hectare vineyard (3 acres) is located at the bottom of the slope. It enjoys a soil composed mainly of clay and loams. Pottery fragments found in this vineyard show that this was a farming settlement in Gallo-Roman times. After the farm disappeared, the site remained without vines for a long time before being planted again. “Sanvignes” [vineless] then changed to “Cent-Vignes” [hundred vines] – since a plot with vines cannot be “Vineless”! These reds are remarkable for their colour and the delicacy of their aromas. In the mouth, they combine complexity with mellowness."
