2010 Roulot Bourgogne Blanc

2010 Roulot Bourgogne Blanc (Burgundy, France)

If Stevie had to choose one single wine to drink for the rest of her life, this would be it. Jean-Marc Roulot is like an indie rockstar of the winemaking world: just barely under the mainstream radar because he doesn't have any Grand Cru vineyards. In fact, this is just a "simple" Bourgogne Blanc — meaning it doesn't technically come from any prestigious, named vineyards; just the Burgundy region in general. The insider's secret? Though the label doesn't say so, this is actually from GREAT vineyards in Burgundy's BEST villages... and Jean-Marc treats them that way: like precious, amazing, beautiful babies. The result is banging wine with a price tag that simply doesn't correlate. It is delicious and extraordinary and definitely makes a lasting impression.

Drink with friends and: roast chicken.

Average retail price: $35
