The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse la Verchere comes from a parcel located behind the house with 60-year-old vines in a mixture of limestone and marne soils. It has a captivating bouquet with orange blossom, jasmine and frangipane aromas that feel a little more immediate than the Les Chataignieres. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, again slightly viscous in texture, but it just loses its way in the last quarter and finishes more straightlaced, more conservatively than I was anticipating. Give this a year or two in bottle and it might develop more complexity. Drinking range: 2019 - 2029 Rating: 89+ Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com(Sep 2017)

Less ripe than their Les Chataigniers, creamy texture and fresh palate. Long, savoury and saline to finish. Rich texture with a glossy, polished smoothness. Drinking range: 2017 - 2025 Rating: 17+ Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)

(from 70+ year old vines located in Vergisson). There is just enough reduction present to shave the top notes from the otherwise ripe and pretty nose that is composed by notes of pear, apple, anise and a hint of wood toast. The intense yet caressing medium weight flavors possess excellent volume and richness on the bitter lemon-inflected finale. This very forward effort should drink well almost immediately. 2018+ Rating: 89-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Dec 2016)

(from well-drained 60-year-old vines planted on calcaire ebouillé and marl soil with a clay underpinning--Barraud referred to it as "very complete soil"; all done in fûts, 20% new but most of the rest recent): Full medium yellow. Highly complex scents and flavors of vineyard peach, preserved lemon and grapefruit, plus a riper suggestion of mirabelle. Compellingly rich, fine-grained and deep, conveying a strong impression of terroir in spite of its full alcohol. Finishes dusty and long, with great finesse, sexy minerality and a touch of citrus lift. A very elegant, strong Pouilly-Fuissé. Rating: 90-92 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Oct 2016)

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.
