Appetising sweet-edged fruit, ripe with a sappy texture. Really quite full and fat, but also poised and precise. L&S (Jan 2012)

Light nose with some green notes. Firm, assertive palate entry. Big and bold. Quite a dry finish. Solid – not too sweet. GV. 2013-2015 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2012)
(this vineyard abuts the Pouilly-Fuissé vineyard of La Roche below). Relatively strong reduction presently dominates the nose though there is good vibrancy and verve to the ripe, juicy and intense middle weight flavors that possess a lovely minerality on the dry, crisp and clean finish. I like the focus and balance here. 2014+ Rating: 88 - 91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jan 2012)
Domaine Daniel Barraud
Daniel and Martine Barraud, now joined by their son Julien and daughter Anaïs, have vineyards in Vergisson that 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 are consequently later-ripening, and the wines often have a more solid structure - but all of Daniel's wines have their own character, from the Puligny-like directness of the La Roche to the fat richness of the 'en Buland', via the mineral force of the Crays.
All the wines are made keeping close to the tenets of bio-dynamics - not as Daniel says - for the sake of it, but because over the generations experience has taught them these principles really are the best way forward - as such they only ever bottle on a waning moon. The Domaine is working toward organic certification. All the wines see some barrel ageing apart from the Chaintré, which is aged in foudre (2/3) and tank.
As Allen Meadows wrote in 2014 in Burghound 'I have said this before, but I will say it again: no one makes better wine in the Mâconnais than Barraud. There are a few domaines that produce wines that are sometimes just as good, ... but none of them surpasses the quality he consistently produces. If you aren’t familiar with the wines, you owe it to yourself and your pocketbook to check them out.' (www.Burghound.com).
