A truly wonderful find from Oregon, a Pinot noir that showcases Jacques Lardiere’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 fruity red cherry, redcurrant, black cherry nuances. This fruit continues through onto the svelte medium bodied palate, expressive of its Oregon Pinot fruit allied with a herbal note akin to the 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 a great backbone of acidity. Resulting in a truly delicious Oregon Pinot Noir that should age gracefully. Jacques Lardiere continues with his magic touch across the Atlantic. 2023 – 2030.
Stuart Rae, Commercial Manager - Fine Wine Team (February 2021)

The 2017 Résonance confirms the domaine’s commitment to making a wine with more than just a leaning to Burgundy, and this vintage perhaps Nuits-St Georges in style with earthy, leather notes and no shortage of muscle. This will take a while to come round but should reward well and shows the continuing developments in quality.

Critics reviews

Josh Raynolds, Vinous93/100
Deep ruby-red. Intense red and blue fruit, floral and spice qualities on the fragrant nose, along with hints of succulent flowers and musky earth. Sappy and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry, mulberry and cherry flavors sweetened by a vanilla flourish. Smooth tannins build slowly, adding shape to a very long, smoke- and spice-laced finish. 30% new French oak. Drink 2022-2030.’’

Wine Advocate92/100
Pale to medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Résonance Vineyard Pinot Noir features crushed blueberries, boysenberries and blackberries on the nose with notes of red berries, cinnamon, dried leaves and flowers. The medium-bodied palate is intense and firm with a grainy frame and good freshness, finishing long and fragrant. This will benefit from another year in bottle. About 1,500 cases were produced. Drink 2021 – 2027.

Wine Spectator92 /100
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. 19

About this WINE

Resonance Vineyard

Resonance Vineyard

Résonance is Maison Louis Jadot’s first wine project outside of Burgundy since their founding in 1859. The project is led by famed Jadot Winemaker, Jacques Lardière, who takes over 40 years of experience in the rolling hills of Burgundy and applies it in one of the most exciting nascent Pinot Noir regions in the world.

It took several years for the Jadot team to find the ideal location in the Willamette Valley, but their patience paid off and finally they could kick the Résonance project off.

The Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a blend of the finest vineyards in the valley and includes grapes from the estate owned single vineyards Résonance and Découverte. The result is a cuvée which offers an authentic representation of the region. Imagine combining the elegance, complexity and crunchy fruit of Burgundy with the benefits of a bit of American sunshine.

While similarities might be drawn between Califonia and Bordeaux, Oregon is very much the American equivalent of Burgundy, with only 5,500 hectares planted in 2004. Since the 1960s a plethora of small growers have shunned the sun further south for the often damp, cool climate west of the Cascade Mountains, seeking out propitious sites to plant their beloved Pinot Noir among the 150-mile Willamette Valley AVA.

Pinot Gris has also taken hold of this corner of the Pacific Northwest; Chardonnay has been less successful due to inappropriate clonal selection. Domaine Drouhin Oregon is arguably the region's top producer, with most of the wine from this region swallowed up by the thirsty North American market.

Pinot Noir

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.
