- Well known Burgundian producer Louis Jadot acquired the vineyard in 2013, but the whole style of the wine is very different from the Oregon norm, being much more Burgundian in style. The man behind it is Jadot's much-admired winemaker of 40 years, Jacques Lardière who, since officially retiring from the company's cellars on the outskirts of Beaune, has been based in Oregon.
A new 13 hectare estate being run by the legendary Jacques Lardiere and Thibaut Gagey. A beautifully elegant soft fruit driven wine with good balancing acidity. One to watch!
- 'Supple and elegantly structured, with expressive raspberry and orange zest aromas and polished flavours that pick up depth and momentum toward a spicy finish framed by refined tannins.' - Wine Spectator
"Quite unlike the often rather sweet, fruity, bumptious Pinots made by others, this 2013 from the widely respected Resonance Vineyard is strongly burgundian in structure." Jancis Robinson
'French wine-maker Maison Louis Jadot chose Oregon for its first venture outside France since the company was formed in 1859. Its debut release, a single vineyard bottling, comes from the Yamhill-Carlton region, 40 miles east of the Pacific Ocean, with its ancient, marine-sediment enriched soil. It's complex and rich with layered flavours of plum, coffee and soft fruits, with a long but surprisingly dry finish. It can be drunk now, but it will become even more interesting if kept for a few more years.' - John Clarke, The Independent]
