2021 Résonance Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA

The nose is expressive of wild strawberry, mulberry, rose, and cedar. The palate reveals a harmony between fresh fruitiness and savory richness, with a persistent, vibrant finish.



The Willamette Valley Pinot noir from Résonance is sourced from both estate vineyards and top vineyards in the Willamette Valley. This wine showcases the absolute best of the Willamette Valley and elegantly blends Maison Louis Jadot’s winemaking history with the Willamette Valley’s signature terroir. In 2021 a late cool spring was contrasted by record heat in June. Fortunately, a warm and dry summer evened-out the dynamic start to the growing season, with high quality fruit in small clusters. Pinot Noir was harvested from September 9th to September 23rd. The fruit was ripe and very clean, with amazing color. The wines are displaying beautiful colors, complex aromas and distinct freshness. With such quality, maceration was pushed, revealing density and well balanced wines.


It was a crisp spring day in April 2013 when Thibault Gagey and Jacques Lardière set out to survey a well-established Oregon vineyard named Résonance. Jacques had just retired after leading winemaking at Maison Louis Jadot for 42 years, and Thibault, whose family has operated Maison Louis Jadot since 1962, was ready to enter the business with a bold new project. They immediately felt a deep connection with the place, and after tasting through dozens of wines made with the vineyard’s fruit, Jacques sat back and said, “Perfect.”

Pierre-Henry Gagey, the President of Maison Louis Jadot and Thibault’s father, agreed. They decided to keep the vineyard’s title, and they also named their new winery—Maison Louis Jadot’s first outside of Burgundy—in its honor. With the same meaning in English and French, Résonance evokes many great things to come. They added the tiny but all-important accent mark to represent this small but special connection between Oregon and France.
