About The Producer
"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."

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
This wine reflects a bright ruby color. The nose is very fresh and fruity with lot of red strawberry and raspberry enhanced by subtle floral and spicy aromas. Elegance and harmony describe precisely the palate. Tannins are present and fine, while the acidity brings a nice freshness, particularly long.

93 Points - Sommelier Journal
Jasmine and rose petals align with cinnamon tart on the nose. A “heavenly” earthiness abounds on the palate with sweet tobacco, dusty cocoa, and wild strawberry.

92 Points - James Suckling
A medium-bodied red with aromas and flavors of dried cranberries, licorice, earth and walnut husk. Savory dried-mushroom character and dried leaves, too, framed by sleek, fine tannins.

92 Points - Wine Spectator
Pinpoint in structure and revealing a dense core of lively minerality, this is a handsome red with cherry and savory tea flavors that build tension toward medium-grained tannins.

91 Points - Wine & Spirits
Jasmine and rose petals align with cinnamon tart on the nose. A “heavenly” earthiness abounds on the palate with sweet tobacco, dusty cocoa, and wild strawberry.

90 Points - Vinous
Shimmering ruby. Smoky, spice-tinged black raspberry and cherry aromas carry a subtle floral topnote. Lively dark fruit and floral pastille flavors are deepened by a licorice nuance and a hint of bitter chocolate. Silky in texture and appealingly sweet, finishing with sharp focus and spicy persistence.
