Tasting Highlights: 2006 Puligny-Montrachet
Wine Spectator July 2009- Bruce Sanderson
10 Chardonnays show the elegance and structure of white Burgundy

Louis Latour Puligny-Montrachet Les Champgains 2006, score:90
Rich, with iodine and mineral notes complementing the peach and the melon flavors. This is powerful and shows heft on the finish, where it's just a touch coarse now. Best from 2010 through 2017.

Louis Latour Puligny-Montrachet Les Truffières 2006, score: 90
This has fine intensity, showing peach, lemon, floral and mineral aromas and flavors. On the opulent side, with good length on the finish. Drink now through 2016.

Louis Latour Puligny-Montrachet Sous le Puits 2006,score:90
Ripe, offering apricot and tropical fruit notes, but with enough structure to keep this balanced and lingering on the finish.There's a nice touch of mineral and savory elements on the aftertaste. Drink now through 2016.

Louis Latour Puligny-Montrachet Hameau de Blagny 2006, score:89
Apple, peach and spice flavors are all underscored by mineral in this balanced white, which is open and accessible, with a moderately long finish. Drink now through 2015.
