Although we travel the globe to ferret out the best wines, many of our favorites turn out to be found right in our own backyard. Dozens of local wholesalers and importers visit our tasting room every week, toting satchels and shoulder bags filled with samples of their latest wares. This one was brought to our tasting room by native Washingtonian Pierre Rovani. In 2006, Rovani put down his pen as Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Burgundy critic to take up his dream of making great red and white Burgundy at the venerable Burgundy house of Remoissenet, with great success. This wine offers succulent notes of peach and apricot, woven together nicely in a fabric of minerality, verve, and brisk acidity. The latter is a hallmark of the fine 2010 vintage, perhaps the best ever in the Macon.
