Rare and very limited Allamand Valle de Uco Pinot Noir 2013

100% Pinot Noir from JP Calandria's vineyard located in the district of El Peral, part of the department of Tupungato, and one of the highest places in Valle de Uco.

 

In this vineyard, that also has Malbec planted at the top of the hill plus Cabernet Sauvignon planted on the hillside of the property facing east, we find 1.5 hectares of Pinot Noir (clon 777) at the bottom of it that was planted in 2000.

 

10% of the wine spent 12 months in new French oak barrels and then 18 months in the bottle before its release to the market.

 

Total production for the 2013 vintage was 5,000 bottles

Rare and very limited Allamand Cuvee Saint Jeannet 2016

This unique and distinctive white wine is made in its entirety with Saint Jeannet which is also referred to as Gros Vert Blanc. As far as we know, this strange and almost extint grape variety originates in France (Grasse according to some... southern Rhone according to others...) Cristian Allamand along with his father Raymond Stanislas Allamand have rescued this variety and own the only 2 hectares planted to 100% Saint Jeannet at La Lucita vineyard, in the district of El Carrizal, part of the department of Lujan de Cuyo.

 

In 2013, working in conjunction with the local INTA and the remote direction of Jose Vouillamoz (genetecist that works with Jancis Robinson and Julia Harding, MW, co-authoring "Wine Grapes: A Complete Guide to 1,368 Vine Varieties, including their Origins and Flavours"), DNA analysis confirmed with 99% confidence that the grapes that the Allamands are cultivating are Saint Jeannet/Gros Vert Blanc.

 

With a very limited production of 5,000 bottles, the 2016 vintage was the starting point for this rare, unique, and almost extint grape variety.
