Discreet but not invisible oak influence frames the white and yellow orchard fruit nose that displays background notes of honeysuckle and orange peel. The concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess fine complexity on the intensely mineral-driven and long finish. This is also very good if perhaps not quite as deep as the Les Crays though this may very well change in time. 2018+

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.
