2006 bouchard père monthélie 1er clos les champs fulliot

Not that cheap, but a very good wine:

2006 Bouchard Père et Fils, Monthélie 1er Clos les Champs Fulliot
This is a ‘domaine’ wine. Medium-plus cherry-red colour. There’s width and interest on this perfumed, high-toned nose – very pretty indeed, almost in a Volnay style. The texture has a slightly gravelly tannin as its base, but the balance is very, very good. There’s some faint licorice flavours in the finish from what is otherwise a red-fruit dominated performance. Oh and it’s quite a good finish too.
Rebuy – Yes

    A Domain wine Bill ?

    I thought this was owned by Ropiteau-Mignon and managed by Bouchard or am I out of date ?

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
