Very pure, quite concentrated fig and aniseed with some oatmeal and toast. Palate has lovely ripe peach, fig, citrus fruit, then cream, aniseed and complex oak notes. Fine acidity and length with a good mineral finish.

(this vineyard abuts the Pouilly-Fuissé vineyard of La Roche, reviewed below). Here too there is a note of petrol on the pretty nose that is comprised of pear, white peach and softly floral aromas. The solidly well concentrated middle weight flavors exude a fine bead of minerality on the citrusy and slightly longer finish that is markedly dry but not really austere. This is really very good for what it is and would make a good choice for an all-around house white. 2017+

Daniel and Martine Barraud's vineyards have been in the family since 1890 and with their son Julien now helping to run the domaine - they represent the fifth generation of the family to be making wine here. Most of their 8.5 hectares vines are in Vergisson and are mostly high up under the famous rock (Vergisson lies between the two dramatic cliffs of the rocks of Solutré and Vergisson).

The vineyards here are significantly higher than those of Fuissé, and consequently later-ripening, and the wines often have a more solid structure - but all Daniel's wines have their own character, from the Puligny-like directness of the La Roche to the fat, almost California-like 'en Buland', via the mineral force of the Crays.
