This is the estate Pinot of the extra-ordinary winery established by Louis Jadot in the Willamette valley in Oregon.
The wine is sensational and though perhaps not as concentrated as the single-site wines, it offers an amazing array of complex flavours, from dark fruits to spices, all held in perfect tension in a wine that is never over-powering or cloying. A brilliant example of a premium wine style, classic wine-making and a world-famous region.
This is an excellent example of how and why the wines from this region in the right hands can achieve such wonderful heights. It's also how and why premium Pinot Noir should be made and is significantly good value when compared to other world regions making wine from the same grape!
