The Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from Résonance is sourced from both estate vineyards (Résonance and Découverte Vineyards) and top vineyards in the Willamette Valley. The wine showcases the absolute best of the Willamette Valley, and elegantly blends Maison Louis Jadot’s winemaking with the Willamette Valley’s signature terroir.

Harvest Note
We had a 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), giving very good condition of maturation. We started the harvest on September 28th with ripe and complex grapes of Pinot noir.
Tasting Note
The wine reflects a bright ruby color. The nose is very fresh and fruity, with a lot of red (strawberry, raspberry) and black fruits ( wild cherry, blackberry), 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.
Food Pairing
Pairs well with poultry or red meat, as well with heavier seafood and roasted vegetables.
