Résonance, Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton, Willamette Valley, Oregon 2017


This is the flagship single-vineyard wine from Jadot's critically acclaimed and much-loved winery in Oregon. It is a staggeringly beautiful wine.

It's as wine of intensity - colour and flavour - that is sustained by complexity, structure, length and a gorgeous mouth-feel. Flavours of dark fruits, black cherry, violets, integrated timer and notes of truffle and tobacco are never overpowering and the whole experience is lifted by the natural minerality from the soils, giving a stellar finish that points to seriously high quality and long aging potential.

If you are into fine Burgundy but wonder how you'll ever be able to afford it, buy some of this.

Interestingly, both the Louis Jadot winery and the state of Oregon were established in the same year, 1859. This is a circular story between France and the USA, and in particular between the Jadot and Kopf families.

Rudy Kopf, a New York wine importer, became the first agent for Jadot wines in the USA in 1945. Such was the relationship and respect between the two families, that in 1984 Madam Jadot passed ownership of the whole Jadot business to the Kopfs.

Their joint search for a project outside Burgundy began in 2000 and it was in 2013 that their search took them to the Resonance vineyard in Oregon (note the spelling: no acute accent just yet...).

The wines from the vineyard were already great, but with the know-how of Jadot's Burgundy estate manager Pierre-Henry Gagey and his family (who had been running the show in the vineyards since the 1950s), a rocket was set off and the region suddenly had a brand new super-star winery.

The word Resonance, they say, evokes many great things to come. And retaining the letters, they changed it, when officially naming the winery, by adding the accent to the e, at once stamping French ownership and retaining international familiarity. Clever.

This particular vineyard, the one that they found first, is based on ancient, shallow soils of fine shale-like maritime basalt, and is one of the finest vineyards in the state. At a range of altitudes from 80-150m asl it isn't too cold at night, not does it overly suffer heat stress during the summer. Planted with the best of Burgundian Pinot Noir clones, the vineyard is further protected by weather fronts by the neighbouring mountains of the Coast Range.

Amazing service from the get go!
I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!

Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
