The 8 hectare Resonance Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA was first planted in 1981. Gagey stated, "This is the first time that Jadot will produce wine outside of Burgundy. We were impressed by the quality of the wines we tasted here."
Jacques Lardière, former winemaker at Louis Jadot, will be responsible for all aspects of cultivation, vinification and ageing of the wines, starting with the 2013 harvest.
Situated on a curved hillside facing south-east, south and southwest, the vineyard is currently planted with Pinot Noir, planted between 1981 and 2006, and a small amount of Gewürztraminer. The vines are all on their original roots. While phylloxera is present in Oregon, the Resonance Vineyard sellers, Kevin and Carla Chambers do not believe it presents a threat to the Resonance site as the site is buffered by the grafted vineyards surrounding it. Commented Kevin Chambers, "With careful management, Resonance can be kept own-rooted for a long time."
Carla and Kevin Chambers, Resonance Vineyard's owners and managers for the past 24 years, said, "We're honored to pass the baton of stewardship to Maison Louis Jadot." Adding that, "We believe the Jadot team will build upon our success." Wines from Resonance Vineyard fruit have been among the most coveted Oregon Pinot Noirs for the past two decades.
