This Pinot Noir, coming from the oldest block of Pommard clone in the Résonance Vineyard, is from original un-grafted rootstocks in marine sedimentary soils. This particular bottling is celebrated to be the 40th vintage of this vineyard with the 2021 vintage. Vieilles Vignes is a term in the French language for traditional old vines. This Pinot Noir is full of subtle notes of black licorice, blueberry, violet and spices. The palate is particularly elegant and well balanced between the subtle expression of noble wood from the barrels selected from the Tronçais forest along with the structure from the Résonance Vineyard.

Thibault Gagey and Jacques Lardière set out to survey an established vineyard named Résonance in 2013. Jacques had led winemaking at Maison Louis Jadot for 42 years, and Thibault, whose family has operated Louis Jadot since 1962, was ready to enter the business. They felt a connection with Résonance. Pierre-Henry Gagey, the President of Louis Jadot aand Thibault’s father, agreed. They decided to keep the vineyard’s title, and named their new winery—Louis Jadot’s first outside of Burgundy—in its honor. Résonance evokes great things to come. They added the accent mark to represent this special connection between Oregon and France.
