(aged in two-thirds foudre and the remainder in stainless). This is almost Chablis-like in its aromatic profile as there is a note of iodine on the aromas of mineral reduction and apple. The mouth feel is likewise cool and restrained with good delineation and punch to the utterly delicious middle weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the clean, dry and balanced finish. 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.
