Louis Jadot branches out into Oregon

23 August, 2013

Pierre-Henry Gagey and Jacques Lardičre

Maison Louis Jadot has snapped up the 8ha Resonance Vineyard to produce Pinot Noir in Oregon’s Willamette Valley for an undisclosed fee.

It marks the Burgundy-based firm’s first overseas purchase and chief executive Pierre Henry Gagey said he was “impressed by the quality of wines” the estate produces.

Jacques Lardičre, former winemaker at Louis Jadot, will be responsible for cultivation, vinification and aging of the wines, starting with the 2013 harvest.

The vineyard is planted mainly with Pinot Noir and a small patch of Gewürztraminer.

Jadot purchased the property from Kevin and Carla Chambers, who are in the process of buying a 32ha estate in the Eola-Amity Hills for Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Noir production.
