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.

Simple, balanced and neutral. Fleshy texture. Fulfils the basic style remit. Drinking range: 2016 - 2017 Rating: 15 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2017)

(aged in two-thirds foudre and the remainder in stainless). A ripe and ever-so-mildly exotic nose features mostly fresh aromas of white orchard fruit and citrus nuances. There is good vibrancy to the fruity and delicious middle weight flavors that possess good density on the easy-to-like, round and balanced finish. 2017+ Rating: 86-88 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Dec 2016)
