Commentary from the winery:

The Willamette Valley Chardonnay from Résonance is sourced from both estate vineyards and top vineyards in the Willamette Valley. This wine showcases the absolute best of the Willamette Valley and elegantly blends Maison Louis Jadot’s winemaking history with the Willamette Valley’s signature terroir.

A wine with a bright golden color and a delicate nose of lemon blossom, jasmine, orange peel, and vanilla. The palate is fresh and vibrant, with beautiful balance and a crisp finish.

2021 is an exceptional vintage with harmonious wines. From May the growing season was ideal: sunny and dry, without rain. Bloom was accomplished with perfect weather conditions. July and August were some of the warmest and driest on record, but without the heat spikes of 2016 and 2017. In mid-September, two weeks of cool nights, following a few days of rain, helped the end of the maturation and allowed grapes to develop a complex aromatic profile and to retain a nice acidity. This was perfect weather for the harvest from September to the beginning of October.

Critical acclaim:

"96 points. Still in barrel, the 2021 Chardonnay Willamette Valley is the first iteration of this wine from Résonance, made from both estate and purchased fruit. The nose opens with streaks of matchstick and crushed almonds that give way to a deep core of yellow apple, jasmine and touches of cream and butter. The medium-bodied palate is satiny and expansive with savory layers energized by focused acidity, and it has a long, textural finish with alluring floral perfume." - Wine Advocate
