Notes from Résonance:

"It was a crisp spring day in April 2013 when Thibault Gagey and Jacques Lardière set out to survey a well-established 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.

Résonance Vineyard is our signature estate vineyard and produces the benchmark single-vineyard Résonance Pinot Noir. Planted in 1981 the 20-acre vineyard is organically dry-farmed and situated in the Yamhill Carlton AVA on a south-facing slope between 262 and 492 feet in elevation. 

An intense color with nice red tinges. The nose is complex, with notes of black cherry, blonde tobacco, black truffle, violet flowers, and noble essences of wood. The palate reveals a perfect harmony between the tannic structure and the aromatic complexity, while the minerality gives a vibrant finale, suggesting a long life."

Winemaking
Each lot is aged in custom, handcrafted French oak barrels, chosen for the right tightness of grain as well as the soil in which the oak grew. We allow our wines to rest quietly—racking maybe only once—until they reach their purest expression, and are then released.
