2011 Vieilles Vignes En Buland Domaine Daniel Barraud


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)

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).

Wines bought en primeur are scheduled to arrive in the UK over the course of the next eighteen months. If you do not wish to take home delivery, you may wish to consider where you would like the wines shipped on arrival in the UK. Lea & Sandeman offers duty paid and in bond storage through a dedicated storage company called Elephant Storage. For more details on the terms and fees associated with storage please go to our Storage Homepage or contact our primeurs team for more information.

While helpful, we do not require a firm commitment on delivery destination to process your primeur order at this stage. Our team will be in contact with you when your wines arrive in the UK to confirm the necessary delivery details.


OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.

PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.

DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.

DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.

PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
