Description

And lastly and certainly not least is the NE facing (read cooler) En Buland, a wine that both critics and the Barrauds regularly recognize as the finest of the range, in spite of the fact that the vagaries of the newly created 1er cru system in the Macon did not award it such a label. Along with the Pommards, this presented the most classical sense of cooler white florals and self evident intense limestone punch, with at once a richness of body and sense of class/dimension that are plain outstanding. A no brainer little * awarded here, comme d’hab. (as usual). Yummo…..!

“(65+ year old vines near Solutré that face northeast). Firm reduction overpowers the fruit at present. Here too the larger-bodied flavors are rich to the point of opulence, indeed they are almost viscous while coating the palate on the powerful, robust and beautifully long finale. This is not refined though it’s not rustic either while delivering the best overall quality in the range, which is often the case chez Barraud.
