White Burgundy (Bourgogne) is one of the world's classic beverages — with a style that California aspires to imitate but seldom gets just right. (When it does, the results can be amazing). There aren't that many white Burgundies that offer both classic style and an affordable price. This is one that delivers — with excellent balance, hints of apple, lemon and nuts and a subtle toasty quality. It's a lighter style, hardly a blockbuster, but it works on many levels. From: Bourgogne, France Price: $13 Serve with: Salmon, swordfish, ham

Macon Hardy enjoys fashion, but don't call this business development representative for ETI Professionals Inc. trendy. "Having timeless pieces and looking put-together is important to me. I don't like clothes that will be out of style next season. If you think you're going to look silly in it next year, then don't buy it," says the 23-year-old Federal Hill resident. When we "glimpsed" Hardy at Cinghiale in Inner Harbor East, she looked every one of her "5 feet 9 inches and some change" in her "conservative and classy" style.

A year after a veteran firefighter was killed responding to a blaze in Greektown, Baltimore fire officials released an investigative report that blamed the death on more than a dozen errors and safety violations - including miscommunication and possible equipment misuse. Allan M. Roberts, who had been a firefighter for 19 years, was killed in the blaze Oct. 10 last year after he entered a rowhouse at 514 S. Macon St. with two other firefighters. As the firefighters retreated from the building, Roberts collapsed inches from the front door and could not be rescued.
