2015 Domaine Daniel et Julien Barraud St Veran les Pommards
Cépage: Chardonnay (100%)
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 90 (RP)
" 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."
