Wine Spectator 93 points – Light and focused, showing distinctive subtlety. A layer of crinkly tannins underlies a pulsing core of mineral-accented cherry and red berry flavors, hinting at cinnamon as the finish lingers gently.
Maison Louis Jadot, one of the most venerable, trusted and revered wine houses in the world, has been producing wines from the heartland of Pinot Noir, the French region of Burgundy with its first purchase of the Clos des Ursules vineyard in 1826. For its first venture outside of France, the Louis Jadot team became interested in the terroir and wines from Oregon. In 2013, the ideal location was found and a vineyard bought in the Willamette Valley, specifically the Yamhill-Carlton AVA region. The Resonance project is led by famed Jadot Winemaker, Jacques Lardiere, who takes 42 years of experience in winemaking from the beautiful Pinot Noirs of Burgundy to the world’s most up and coming Pinot Noir regions.
