2015 Resonance, "Resonance Vineyard" Pinot Noir, Yamhill Carlton
Maison Louis Jadot's first project in Oregon. This signature estate Pinot Noir is a pure expression of the famous dry-farmed Résonance Vineyard, planted on un-grafted rootstock in 1981, farmed organically, and now under the care of legendary winemaker Jacques Lardière, whose 42 years of experience in winemaking from the beautiful Pinot Noirs of Burgundy was a perfect fit for the world’s most up-and-coming Pinot Noir region.
The Résonance Vineyard terroir imparts its signature “minerality” and tannic structure, an effect sometimes referred to as “polished tannins”. The aromatic concentration is remarkable, with black cherry, blackberry, and blueberry aromas. The finish is very long, harmonious, and fresh.
