Roasted chicken is a classic dish that generally follows a pretty standard recipe, with regional seasonings including everything from lemon and garlic to lavender being mixed and matched. The flavors tend to be subtle as to not overpower the flavors of the chicken. With dishes like this, the best approach to food and wine pairing is to find a flavor bridge that offers complementary pairing. 

For example, the lemon often left in the cavity of a roasting chicken tends to impart a light acidic flavor to the bird. A wine with lemony fruit like a nice, fresh Chardonnay can be the perfect complement to this style of chicken. Add in more herbs and spice, and the classic pairing is Beaujolais, in which crunchy red fruit is paired with herbal accents.
