WINEMAKER'S NOTES A delicate and intense nose of violet, wild strawberry, blueberry, Rainier cherry, cloves, oak and cedar. The palate reveals a harmonious wine, balanced between fresh fruits, fine but expressive tannins and a vibrant acidity. A delicate but persistent finish.

The spring was relatively cool with mild frosts in early April. Although there was no damage to the vineyards, it impacted fruit set resulting in small clusters and berries. The summer was warm and dry, with heat and hydric stress at the end of August, leading to low disease pressure, and high-quality fruits. All the lots revealed fruity expression and a beautiful texture. Macerations were long, between three and four weeks, and then all the wines have aged in barrels for fifteen months.


Wine Spectator - "When Maison Louis Jadot looked for its first project outside Burgundy, Oregon’s Willamette Valley and its distinctive terroir stood out. The French house staked its claim in Oregon’s Yamhill-Carlton AVA, building a new brand around Résonance Vineyard, which was originally planted in 1981. The winemaking team consists of Guillaume Large and Jacques Lardière, who was Jadot’s chief winemaker for 42 years until he “retired” in 2012. Thibault Gagey is director of operations. The Willamette Valley 2021 is a blend from Résonance and other estate vineyards as well as other top sites in the Willamette Valley. The wine aged 15 months in French oak, of which 30 percent was new."
