Pouilly-Fuisse 'La Verchere VV', D. Barraud

Pouilly-Fuisse 'La Verchere VV', D. Barraud
  • In Vergisson below the Roche de Vergisson, around the Barraud home.
  • 60+ year old vines facing south at 280 meters
  • On a cooler limestone dominated site that endows the wine with a large dose of minerality to balance perfectly with the lemony backbone of fruit.  One of the longest wines in the lineup and the cru that consistently hints of Puligny-Montrachet with its luxurious finish.
  • Indigenous yeast
  • Aged for 12 months in barrel (20% new)
  • Finished in tank for 2 months before bottling
