Maison Louis Jadot, Bourgogne Rouge (Burgundy, France) Pinot Noir 2021

($22, Kobrand):  Value in Burgundy these days is found at the lower pedigree appellations made by talented producers.  Enter this Bourgogne Rouge from Jadot.  With an engaging combination of savory notes intertwined with hints of red and black fruit, this mid-weight wine is real Burgundy, or Bourgogne as the French would prefer to call it.  Thankfully, like Burgundy in general, it’s not heavy or particularly fruity.  That character along with its bright acidity and mild tannins make it ideal for grilled salmon.  It would also take a slight chill nicely which means it’s a good substitute for a Rosé.
