A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. Romorantin is a grape that supposedly originated in Burgundy as a PinotTeinturier X GouaisBlanc. It used to be widely planted in the Loire but is now down to 180 acres, only in the commune of Cour-Cheverny.
This was an interesting label in that it didn't havean AOC or IGP identifier on the label. The importer, JonDavid, used to work w/ TerryTheise.
I don't see that Romorantin is ever going to set the world on fire. Calif could undoubtedly make the world's greatest Romorantin if they tried it. Barrel frment/barrel-aged/full malolactic/15% alcohol...yum.
