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. Another one which could do with three or four years. Drinking range: 2014 - 2020 Rating: 95-95 L&S (Nov 2012)

Daniel Barraud is one of the Mâconnais' superstars and this is why: a white Burgundy with lovely expressive aromas, a delicate subtle lees-derived nuttiness and behind it deliciously concentrated, peachy Chardonnay fruit with juicy acidity. Rating: 92 The Wine Gang - www.thewinegang.com(Oct 2013)
Le commentaire d'Olivier Poussier, meilleur sommelier du monde : La cuvée "En Buland" provient de vieilles vignes faibles en rendement plantées dans les années 30. Fort d'une maturité parfaite, c'est un vin généreux, gras et riche. Il possède une attaque de bouche plutôt monstrueuse par son côté plein, mais avec une identité minérale superbement affirmée en fin de bouche. Une attaque assez grasse, une finale qui se resserre : Le tout forme un vin d'une grande précision. UN VIN QUI FAIT HONNEUR À LA CÔTE MÂCONNAISE La vinification et la gestion du bois est parfaite, le vin est à la fois complet, gras et puissant, faisant honneur à la Côte maconnaise. Ce vin démontre que la Côte mâconnaise, sur certains lieux-dits et terroirs, peut assumer une certaine légitimité vis à vis de certains crus de la Côte de Beaune. Le prix élevé de ce vin correspond à une cuvée de prestige pour cette appellation, mais qui est en rapport avec sa concentration, sa matière ainsi que son aptitude de vieillissement.La Revue du Vin de France(Sep 2013)
Lots of acidity and structure. Very ambitious. Undertow of throat lozenge… 2016-2024 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2013)
(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+ Rating: 92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Sep 2012)
Domaine Daniel Barraud
Daniel and Martine Barraud, now joined by their son Julien, 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, 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).
