Domaine Daniel Barraud Pouilly Fuisse La Verchere 2019

Product description
Domaine Daniel et Julien Barraud is not only the source of Vergisson’s finest organic wines but also sets the standard for world-class white Burgundy from the Maconnais. The petit hamlet of Vergisson, with its high-altitude vineyards, is where the region’s finest wines are made. 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. 

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé La Verchère Vieilles Vignes is rich and dramatic, bursting with aromas of citrus oil, crisp orchard fruit, peaches and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, textural and enveloping, with a ripe core of fruit, succulent acids and an expansive finish, it's a muscular, concentrated wine that is already very demonstrative.
