Scented, more citrus, bright and pure with oak notes. Palate has layers of cream, peach, nut, fig, yet lovely balance concentration and weight with drive and a mineral finish.

(from 70+ year old vines located in Vergisson). A ripe, fresh and elegant aromatic profile presents notes of pear, white peach and honeysuckle that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is plenty of palate coating dry extract on the delicious, intense and suave medium-bodied flavors that deliver better than average length but not quite the same depth. Of course more may develop with time and because the underlying material is excellent my score offers the benefit of the doubt. 2020+

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.
