A good, earthy Burgundy for less than $20? I couldn’t believe it. And not some plonk from a shady negociant but a lovely expression of Pinot Noir from the respected house of Louis Jadot. Named for the 15th century convent where Jadot used to make its wines until the 1970s, the grapes for this wine come from the villages of Givry in the Côte Chalonnaise and Côte de Beaune, plus a little from the Côtes de Nuits Villages AOC. Gentle, yet full of Burgundy character, this is the perfect medium-weight wine for a buttery roast chicken, a plate of sauteed chanterelles, a cheese souffle or a chicken pot pie.

Region: Burgundy

Price: About $17

Style: Earthy and gentle

What it goes with: Chicken pot pie, turkey, sauteed mushrooms, cheese souffle
