Résonance Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

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 elevage, 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

Cold and wet winter and spring brought a late flowering (end of June). However the summer was one of the warmest (new record in August), allowing for full maturation. We started the harvest on September 28th with ripe and complex grapes of Pinot Noir.

tasting note

An intense color with nice red hues. The nose is complex, with notes of black cherry, blond tobacco, black truffle, violet flowers, and noble essences of wood. The palate reveals a perfect harmony between the tannic structure and the aromatic complexity, while the minerality gives a vibrant finale, suggesting a long life.
