Description

Like so many of the Barraud’s wines, this too is a perennial value play extraordinaire, from a blend of sites in Vergisson. Julien didn’t have a sample of this one, as he was pouring uniquely 2021s for the wine fair. I was just plain lucky that he had brought 8 bottles of the 2022s as well that had stashed under the table for a few other professionals like myself that he was expecting. Given the overall quality that I tasted, as well as Allen’s note, I have every confidence that this will perform as it so often does as one of the best buys in Pouilly-Fuissé that one will encounter. I hesitate not one bit in this case to trust-your-grower…..

“(from three vineyards located in Vergisson and Fuissé). This is also sufficiently reduced to blur the fruit though a floral hint does peek through the funk. More interesting are the more finely textured medium weight flavors that possess good verve on the bone-dry and sneaky long finale. I like the balance and delivery though this will need to develop more depth to achieve the upper end of my projected range. (88-91)/2027+” Allen Meadows
