"Fans of Allemand's light touch and the elegant wines he produces should flip out for his '11s…

let me state unequivocally that there is no estate in the entire Rhone Valley making finer wines." -Josh Raynolds

We concur. Allemand is undoubtedly one of the most obsessive and skilled winemakers working today.

Simply put: he is making some of the purest, most finessed, and most expressive Syrah available today.

Everything points to 2011 as being a perfect stage for Allemand to show his skills. As he told Josh Raynolds, 2011 is "a true year of terroir."

Our obsession with Allemand is well documented here and our recent offers have sold out quickly, so we'll keep this short. Allemand is currently blowing up - these bottles will very likely sell out on this offer.

What keeps us returning to Allemand is the wine's precision and clarity. Everything feels perfectly composed, beautifully clear.

2011 has all the markings of vintages of Allemand that we love. These are the vintages that Allemand renders a heartbreaking fine-ness, with a delicately etched crushed rock minerality and rigorous acid spine.

Allemand's wines seem to distill and refine Cornas into its most pure form. They're not wines of power, but wines of harmony and hyper-articulate expression. It's for this reason that we love to have his wines in our cellar.

With a scant 4.5 hectares and a reputation that's growing exponentially, Allemand is in short supply. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
