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.
Tropical fruit, pineapple and grapefruit aromas. Beautifully generous and plump, yet retains freshness through good acidic integration. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Rating: 17 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2017)
(from vines situated in Davayé, planted in rocky, high limestone content soil which abuts the Pouilly-Fuissé vineyard of Le Pommard on the edge of Vergisson and Solutré). Once again there is a trace of exoticism to the orchard fruit, white floral and petrol scents that introduce exceptionally rich and full-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract yet there is good punch to the lingering finish that is shaped by a citrus-tinged acid spine. 2019+ Rating: 88-91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Dec 2016)
