Résonance Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Region: America / Oregon / Willamette Valley
Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir

This is Maison Louis Jadot's first project in Oregon. This signature estate Pinot Noir is a pure expression of the dry-farmed Résonance Vineyard, planted on un-grafted rootstock in 1981. These Pinot Noir grapes were handpicked just steps from the Winery and hand-sorted upon arrival. During élevage, the juice is controlled with a light touch honed over 170 years of winemaking in Burgundy, boosting each vintage to achieve its most natural elegance and complexity. Résonance Vineyard Pinot Noir unveils the immense character, the “somewhereness” of this original site, within the Yamhill-Carlton AVA.

harvest note

The growing season was especially warm and dry in 2016, giving perfect conditions for maturity. The maceration revealed a nice concentration and intensity in the wines. 2016 was well balanced with nice aromatic complexity and harmonious tannin structure

tasting note

The dark and bright color of this wine is a perfect illustration of the immense character of Résonance Vineyard. With an intense yet subtle nose of black cherry, wild blueberries and blackberries, clove, noble wood, and violet fragrance, the wine expresses an impressive depth and concentration.

Pairs well with grilled or roasted red meats, game and poultry.
