An Elegant Pinot for $20

When it comes to well-priced pinot noirs, I like to stick to ones that are soft, elegant, and not over-oaked. Domaine Parent, located in the village of Pommard in Burgundy, offers wine made from their younger vines in a declassified release called bourgogne rouge, which is medium-bodied with delicate notes of blueberries and black cherries and a dry finish. The 2006 vintage goes perfectly with seared and steamed chicken. Domaine Parent, Bourgogne Rouge, 2006, $20
