2013 Résonance Vineyard Pinot Noir

Description

A truly wonderful find from Oregon, a Pinot noir that showcases Maison Louis Jadot’s true expertise and skill in making the best wines from the best vineyards.  The nose is reticent at first but with a bit of coaxing reveals redcurrant, black cherry nuances.  This fruit continues through onto the svelte medium bodied palate,  expressive of its Oregon Pinot fruit allied with a structural style of old world Burgundy.  The age of the “Resonance” vines can be seen in the quality & depth of fruit, finely grained tannic line and great acidity.  Resulting in a truly superb inaugural Oregon Pinot Noir for Louis Jadot.  Jacques Lardiere has transferred his magic touch across the Atlantic and no doubt this will be the start of something very special. Drink  2019 – 2025+.

Willamette Valley

Willamette Valley

The Willamette Valley Viticultural Area lies in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. At 5,200 square miles (13,500 km2), it is the largest AVA in the state, and contains most of the state's wineries; The Willamette Valley AVA was established in 1984, and since then six  smaller AVAs have been created within the northern portion of Willamette Valley (Dundee Hills, probably the best known, Chehalem Mountains, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge, and Yamhill Carlton ).

Its soils, rich in volcanic and glacial deposits are ideal for wine-growing. This combines with the Willamette Valley’s relatively mild climate: cool, wet winters and warm, dry summers.

The region's terroir provides some of the best conditions for growing Pinot Noir. Although Williamette Valley is worldwide acclaimed for their production of Pinot Noir wines, it also produces such varietals as Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, and limited quantities of Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy's Côte d'Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climats of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.

Having walked past the vats of the maiden Oregon wine from Louis Jadot at Trisaetum last year, I was intrigued to see how the eventual wine would turn out. Extremely well is the answer. The 2013 Resonance Vineyard Pinot Noir is a straight down the line Oregon Pinot on the nose and I like that. It's not trying to be Burgundian. Ripe black cherries and blueberry, a slight metallic edge, quite tensile and fresh, it is an attractive bouquet. The palate is well balanced with fine tannins, a keen thread of acidity that pierces the blackberry and blueberry fruit, quite linear in style with a silky smooth texture on the finish. Chapeau, Jacques Lardière! This is a very promising debut and I look forward to tasting further vintages.

This is discreet to the point of being all but mute and only aggressive swirling liberates reluctant notes of various red and dark currant, spice and briar scents. There is good intensity to the sleek and intense medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent volume that continues on to the dusty, complex and moderately austere finale. This is clearly built to age and it will need at least 5 to 7 years to shed some of its tannic spine and reward up to 10. In sum, this is an impressive debut. 2021+
