Barraud Pouilly Fuisse En Buland 2019

Product description
The history of the Barraud family began in 1905. Jean-Marie Barraud, a sharecropper, installed himself in the village of Vergisson, in the Maconnais. He saved his earnings until in 1912, he was able to purchase vineyard land, the first parcels of the future Domaine Barraud. Toward the end of the 1930s, the estate's second generation was bottling their own wines on the property, with the first wine from the legendary 'Les Crays' vineyard appearing in 1947. In the 1970s, wines from the Maconnais were slowly being discovered by the wider world, both for their high quality and serious value when compared to white Burgundy from the Cote d'Or. Winemaker Daniel Barraud, the family's fourth generation and his wife Martine today are widely held as one of the top winemaking families in the region. Their son, Julien, began working at the Domaine in 2006. 

93 Points - Burghound

An unrelentingly restrained nose is all but mute and requires determined swirling to slowly reveal ripe and fresh aromas of apricot, white peach and plenty of citrus influence. Like the Sur la Roche, the big-bodied flavours are dense, serious and powerful with excellent depth and persistence. This isn't quite as dense but it's even better balanced.
