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.

The premier cru vineyard of les Teurons is one of the most highly respected in Beaune. Located in the Côte d'Or, the limestone soils are mixed with marl and give the vines a favourable terroir. Domaine Albert Morot cultivates a hectare of vines here on the gently sloping vineyard, which enjoys a south-easterly exposure providing the vines with sunshine for most of the day. The vines have an average age of 50 years and produce low yields of between 23 to 25 hl/ha. A green harvest takes place to control yields and ensure the maximum concentration of flavours in the remaining berries. 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.
