Resonance 2013 Pinot Noir

The newly released Resonance Vineyard Pinot Noir showcases both the Maison Louis Jadot’s tradition of making terroir driven wines and the exquisite quality of Pinot Noir coming from the Yamhill- Carlton region of Oregon outside of Portland.  It combines the style of old world Burgundian Pinots with the outstanding fruit of an Oregon Pinot. 

This is from the first vineyard purchased by Louis Jadot outside of France since 1859 and is made by famed Jadot winemaker Jacques Lardiere.  The fruit comes from dry-farmed vineyard with original rootstock.  The vineyard is a 13-hectare property with 8 hectares planted in Pinot Noir and is one of the oldest in Willamette Valley.

It has a very pretty ruby color and you will first appreciate the wonderful red raspberry and cherry aromas.  On the palate you will thoroughly love the continuing black cherry, red raspberry and cranberry flavors tied together with a touch of forest floor and strong minerality.  This wine is a magical combination of silkiness, fruit and inner strength.

This wine has won an inevitable collection of awards including 94 points from Wine Enthusiast, 93 points from Wine Spectator and more.
