Daniel Barraud's style of Saint-Véran is opulent but carefully corseted by its acidity, giving a wine rich in honeyed fruit pierced with citrus energy and lightly wrapped in oak. For the geographers: the En Crèches vineyard sits beneath the rock of Vergisson. Rating: 89 (Oct 2016)

Directed and focused. Quite broad with some quinine character. Lots to chew on. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - (Sep 2016)

The 2014 Saint Véran en Creches has a floral bouquet, traces of yellow flowers and nougat that are very well defined, even an exotic tincture of white chocolate. The palate is nicely balanced, soft on the entry but it flows nicely. It is not a Saint Veran of enormous weight, but there is a nonchalance, an easy-drinking nature to this wine.

(from vines at the bottom of the rock of Vergisson, on soil featuring clay with active calcaire; one-third each in fûts, cuve and demi-muids; 15% new oak): Pale, bright yellow. Lovely fruit-driven grapefruit and lemon drop aromas are complemented by a touch of sweet oak; really showcases the active calcaire soil. Pliant and enticing, showing an orangey ripeness but classic dryness to the peachy fruit. A bit warm on the end (the wine is carrying 13.5% alcohol) but with lovely freshness of fruit and good length. More structured and powerful than the Saint-Véran Arpège. Drinking range: 2016 - 2019 Rating: 88 Stephen Tanzer, (Dec 2015)

(from vines in Davayé). Once again the nose is heavily reduced and redolent of leesy. There is plenty of dry extract to the seductively textured medium-bodied flavors where the richness is buffered by the moderately firm acid spine, all wrapped in a lemony and impressively persistent finale. 2018+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, (Oct 2015)

Domaine Daniel Barraud

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.
