In 1820 Albert Morot set up his negociant business in Beaune. Between 1984 and 1999 the estate was managed by Francoise Choppin, who discontinued the negociant activity in order to concentrate on its vineyards and winemaking. In January 2000, Geoffroy Choppin de Janvry (a great-nephew), who is an agronomist engineer specializing in viticulture and oenology, took over the family estate. The Domaine spreads over eight hectares of vineyards. These wines, exclusively Premier Crus, are divided into eight appellations. Domaine Albert Morot consistently produces elegant, top quality Burgundian wines which are highly rated around the world. The Domaine has been certified as organic since the 2015 vintage.

Les Bressandes is a premier cru designated vineyard situated to the north of Beaune. Domaine Albert Morot cultivates 1.27 hectares and the average age of the vines here is 50 years old. Planted at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare, these old vines produce a yield of 23 to 25 hl/ha. A green harvest takes place to control yields and ensure the maximum concentration of flavours in the remaining berries. The soil is predominantly limestone mixed with marl. Domaine Albert Morot are in conversion to organic status 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.
