2015 Resonance Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Résonance is Maison Louis Jadot’s first wine project outside of Burgundy, France, since our founding in 1859. This Pinot Noir is our debut release from the beautiful, tree-lined Résonance Vineyard, in the Yamhill-Carlton wine region. From un-grafted vines first planted in 1981, this single vineyard bottling shows the elegance and complexity Oregon Pinot Noirs are famous for.
Maison Louis Jadot, one of the most venerable, trusted and revered wine houses in the world, has been producing wines from the heartland of Pinot Noir, the French region of Burgundy with its first purchase of the Clos des Ursules vineyard in 1826. For its first venture outside of France, the Louis Jadot team became interested in the terroir and wines from Oregon. In 2013, the ideal location was found and a vineyard bought in the Willamette Valley, specifically the Yamhill-Carlton AVA region.
The Résonance project is led by famed Jadot Winemaker, Jacques Lardière, who takes 42 years of experience in winemaking from the beautiful Pinot Noirs of Burgundy to the world’s most up and coming Pinot Noir regions.
#75 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2017.
Deep and brilliant dark ruby color. On the nose, aromas of red fruits pair elegantly with a touch of spice and wood. Flavors such as cherries and currants standout in the mouth and finish with soft tannins and a pleasant minerality.
“Supple and elegantly structured, with expressive raspberry and orange zest aromas and polished flavors that pick up depth and momentum toward a spicy finish. Drink now through 2023.” – Wine Spectator
