Ripe citrus, scented and bright, touch of honey and toffee. Palate is vibrant and juicy with citrus, toast, nut, lovely bright acidity with mineral grip on the long finish, very fine.

(65+ year old vines near Solutré that face north east). A pungent and layered nose is composed by notes of menthol, petrol, white orchard fruit and discreet oak nuances. There is impressive concentration to the relatively powerful and broad-shouldered flavors that are shaped by a lemon-inflected acidity that buffers the opulent and mouth coating finish. This is a big and powerful but balanced wine with bracing acidity but I’m not sure that it’s going to catch the Les Crays and Sur La Roche. 2019+

Domaine Daniel Barraud: Full Wine List and Profile
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.
