Professional Wine Reviews for D. Barraud Pouilly-Fuisse Les Crays Vieilles Vignes 2017

Rated 93 by Decanter
Tucked under the imposing rock of Vergisson, this vineyard goes up to 400 metres, making it one of the higher sites in Pouilly-Fuissé. Like many of the wines from cooler spots, this has performed very well in 2017. The 20% new oak adds some vanilla sweetness, complementing the fresh, crunchy citrus and stone fruit flavours. Drinking Window 2019 - 2023.
Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
From vines below the rock of Vergisson, Barraud's 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Crays Vieilles Vignes opens in the glass with aromas of fresh pear, peach, white flowers, mandarin oil and nutmeg. On the palate, it's full-bodied, satiny and concentrated, with a tight-knit core, racy acids and considerable amplitude, concluding with a chalky finish. As usual, it's finer-boned and more tensile when compared with the fleshier Verchère.

Winery D. Barraud

Region: Burgundy

The beautiful region of Burgundy in France is famously home to some of the most exquisite red wines to be found anywhere on earth, and is most commonly associated with the silky, elegant and flavorful Pinot Noir varietal wines which are commonly produced there. However, the superb and mineral rich soils fed by the Rhone river, and the long hot summers and mild autumns of the region produce a wide variety of fine grapes, and as such, Burgundy produces plenty of different wines which are equally as good as the produce the region is famed for. The region of Burgundy itself has a wine-making history which stretches back at least two thousand years, and as such, it comes as no surprise that the wineries which fill the dozens of controlled appellations of the region rely heavily on traditional methods and techniques when it comes to producing their famous wines.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
