Catching Up with Jacques Lardiere of Louis Jadot

Monday I had a chance to catch up with one of the world's finest winemakers, Jacques Lardiere. Semi-retired from his responsibilities at Louis Jadot, Jacques is now riding herd on Jadot's new project in Oregon. Resonance, in the Yamhill-Carlton appellation,  is the first project outside of France for Jadot since their inception in 1859 and their first vineyard purchase since 1826!  This unique, ungrafted, 19 acre  vineyard was planted between 1981 and 2006 and is biodynamically farmed. 2013 is the initial release for the project and the results are very impressive. Showing marvelously ripe fruit and excellent minerality, the wine is very much made in the Jadot style - with firm acidity lending a classic structure to the wine. The wine is now on our shelves and will be poured at our Benchmark Pinot Noir Tasting on March 28th at the Park City Club. Look for invitaions with more details early next week.
