Albert Morot is a family-owned estate situated in the Côte De Beaune wine region. The domaine comprises 8 hectares (20 acres) of vineyards, including plots in seven Premier Cru climats in Beaune – Les Teurons, Les Bressandes, Les Toussaints, Les Gréves, Les Cent Vignes, Les Aigrots and Les Marconnets – and one in Savigny-les-Beaune, Bataillère. The estate was originally established as a négociant business in 1820 by Albert Morot. The company bought its first vines in the 1880s, and built the cellars, Château de Creusotte, in 1898. Morot's great-granddaughter Françoise Choppin inherited the estate in 1984 and stopped the négociant business, instead turning all focus to the estate-owned vineyard parcels. In 2000, Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry assumed the management of the domaine.
