(bottled at the end of November 2016, along with the rest of these '15s): Bright yellow. The very ripe nose comes as a shock after the 2016s, conveying a slightly high-toned character to the almost liqueur-like aromas of stone fruits and brioche. Very sweet, fat and high-toned, but a bit much for this taster. Finishes with decent mineral verve, but I'm not sure where this wine can go in the bottle. The acidity levels in the finished '15s range between 3.5 and 3.9 grams per liter, according to Julien Barraud, with most of them in the 3.6 to 3.8 range.

The 2015 St Veran les Pommards comes from 50-year-old vines next to Roche de Solutré. The wine was vinified 12 months in barrel, with 20% new oak, racked and then bottled the following November. Frangipani, dried apricot and melon furnish the aromatics that neatly embrace that new oak, which lends it just the lift and roundness it needs. The palate is very well balanced with marmalade and quince notes on the entry. This is forward and generous, built on that keen thread of acidity, leading to a finish that offers plenty of tangy apricot and orange rind lingering on the tongue. Excellent.

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)
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.
