small yellow onion, thinly sliced
sprigs fresh tarragon, plus 1/2 tablespoon chopped leaves
- In a large saucepan, over medium-high heat, bring the wine, onion, pepper, and whole tarragon sprigs to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until the mixture is reduced by two-thirds, 20 to 25 minutes, depending on size of pan.

- Remove from heat and stir in the salt and chopped tarragon. Serve over chicken, fish, or vegetables.
