I'm looking for recommendations for decent red Burgundy priced at $35 or under. Is this possible? I've found quite enjoyable Bordeaux and Rhones for well under $35 at times. However, it seems there is no "QPR" Burgandy.
Suggestions appreciated.

Thanks!

Mangien, that's about it you'll find under $35 and maybe a few Dominique Laurent's. Generally if it's under $35 you don't want to buy it, as you will have over paid by at least $25 for the quality you get.
If you're in the $50 and under market...stick to US Pinot. If you're in the $50-100 market...there's a lot of great Burgundy out there that can easily compete with the best of what we have to offer.
Not mind blowing, but I have had decent success with Borgogne level wines from Meo-Camuzet and Henri Perrot-Minot in decent vintages. The 05 Louis Latour Marsannay was pretty decent for about $20. Otherwise, slim pickings. Good luck.

It is difficult to to recommend "a good Burgundy for under $35". There are so many producers and so many areas, that it is hard to pick one, and say you should go find this bottling, this year, and buy it. The system is much more intricate than that. I would suggests just going to the wine store and picking up some bottles and trying them. There are several wines in the under $35 that will be good. Nothing will knock your sox off mind you, but I think you can get an idea of the flavor profiles of the wines of this region, and then decide if you want to explore it any further. I consume a fair number of Bourgogne bottlings, and enjoy them. If you find enjoyment in those bottles, then perhaps this is a region worth looking into.
Try looking for Dujac Fils et Pere. The negociant business produces typical examples of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey St Denis and Chambolle Musigny each year. These are around $35 per bottle equivalent in the UK.

Agreed. USA all the way. Don't waste your money on Burgs unless you're willing to spend more money.

For $35 and under I would try a NZ Pinots like Craggy Range, Cloudy Bay, etc.
