2019 Resonance Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Resonance Vineyard was acquired by Maison Louis Jadot, the first acquisition of this legendary Burgundy house outside of Burgundy. Jacques Lardière made his name for Maison Louis Jadot as the winemaker for 42 years. He oversaw the production of more than 140 different wine from more than 100 different classified appellations around Burgundy and Beaujolais. After retiring from Maison Louis Jadot, he now focuses on crafting Pinot Noir from the Résonance Vineyard and the winery known as Résonance. The first release, from the 2013 vintage, arrived in February 2016.
The winemaker along with Lardiere is Guillaume Large, joined the winery in 2017. He was born in the heart of Pouilly-Fuissé and earned an Oenologist's National Diploma at the Jules Guyot Institute of Dijon. He worked a stint at Maison Joseph Drouhin and then served as assistant technical director at Maison Louis Jadot, where he worked under Lardière.
Our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir represents a blend of the finest vineyards in the Willamette Valley and includes grapes from our own estate vineyards, Résonance and Découverte. We work with like-minded wine growers throughout the area who share our commitment to cultivating terroir-driven Pinot Noir.
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.
The result is a cuvée that offers an authentic representation of the Willamette Valley AVA.
