2021 Resonance Pinot Noir Precise and elegantly structured, with detailed raspberry, savory tea and crushed stone accents that gather richness and tension toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2031. 94pts Wine Spectator
Deep and brilliant dark ruby color. On the nose, aromas of red fruits pair elegantly with a touch of spice and wood. Flavors such as cherries and currants standout in the mouth and finish with soft tannins and a pleasant minerality. Wine Maker
Oregon combines the best of both worlds for great Pinot Noir. The wines have the complexity of flavor, fruit and savory, and length that you find in great Burgundy. They also have an added fruit component that make the wines brighter and more accessible. I was always concerned about their ability to age. I recently went to a tasting of cellared Oregon Pinot’s and I can tell you the wines that age and develop in the bottle superbly.
Our customers loved the 2020 vintage which sold out fast and we have just received the 2021 Resonance Pinot Noir. From the great Yamhill-Carlton Appellation that makes some of Oregon’s finest and most expensive Pinot Noirs. In the last 6 years the wine has scored between 92-94pts by the Wine Spectator and has been on the Wine Spectator’s Top 100 twice and as low as #17 on the Top 100. Résonance is Maison Louis Jadot’s first wine project outside of Burgundy, France, since our founding in 1859. Many of the finest Burgundian producers have chosen to make wine in Oregon. Others Drouhin ,Comte Liger Belair, Domonique Lafon, and Meo Camuzet are making great wines in the Willamette Valley. This is a single vineyard bottling from the tree-lined Resonance Vineyard. From un-grafted vines first planted in 1981, the result is a wine of superb elegance and complexity. The Résonance project is led by famed Jadot Winemaker, Jacques Lardière, 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. Pinot lovers you will love this wine.
