Lea & Sandeman review
‘En Buland can be very massive, and this is, but also amazingly bright. Rich yet taut and tight and twangy. A real scrape of chalk. Very complete..’ L&S (2012) 95/100
Other reviews and comments
‘(65+ year old vines near Solutré that face north east). Here the nose is similar to that of the La Roche though slightly more reserved. There is excellent freshness and vibrancy on the tightly coiled, powerful and driving flavors that also enjoy remarkable reserves of palate staining dry extract. This is stunningly long and while not as overtly stony, there is even better depth. A qualitative choice.‘ 2017+ 92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com
Domaine Daniel Barraud
‘Barraud is unquestionably in the very top echelon of producers in Pouilly-Fuissé. [He] is crafting superlative wines that equal or surpass the finest offerings of the Cote de Beaune’s grand cru vineyards‘. Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.eRobertParker.com
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
