Toastier nose, with ripe peach flesh and citrus, intense grip of ripe citrus acidity on the palate, tightly wound but mouthwatering with peach and lemon once more, underscored by a lovely nutty oak.

Pale straw. Rich apple sauce on the nose (and I promise I wrote that before I noticed the name of the cuvée). Lots of extract and charm. Clean and svelte. Great balance and lots of delivery.

The 2014 Saint Véran les Pommards has more complexity and intensity than the En Creche, roaring out of the glass with lovely flint and smoky notes before settling down to something more refined. The palate is very well balanced, quite phenolic in the mouth but very well balanced. I love the weight here and yet it is never overpowering, hints of almond and peach skin embroidered on the finish. This is a classy number.

(on its finings in tank; from northwest-facing 50-year-old vines at the bottom of La Roche de Solutré; aged entirely in fûts, 20% new, for 12 months): Deeply pitched aromas of ripe peach, apricot, orange and smoky oak; clean but showing a slightly exotic honeyed ripeness. Fat, rich and sweet, offering tangy lift and good bracing acidity to its stone fruit flavors. Quite minerally and firm on the aftertaste. Serious juice: this will be a Saint-Véran to age.
89-90 (Dec 2015)

(from vines situated in Davayé, planted in rocky, high limestone content soil which abuts the Pouilly-Fuissé vineyard of Le Pommard on the edge of Vergisson and Solutré). A pungent nose is composed of apple, grapefruit and acacia blossom. The rich, round and utterly delicious middle weight flavors possess an abundance of energy and dry extract that serves to buffer a similarly firm acid spine on the clean, dry and citrusy finale. Good stuff and worth a look. 2019+

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.
