Comments Domaine Mumm contracted with Foundation Plant Services in 1988 to import four Pinot noir clones from Champagne Perrier-jouet, France, for the Domaine Mumm vineyards and the FPS public collection. All of the clones in this set were duplicated in other importations, but multiple copies of the same clone have been maintained in the FPS collection if the copies originated from different sources. Since there is no way to verify clonal identity, keeping multiple copies increases the chances of having an accurate copy of a specific clone. Pinot noir 51 came to FPS in 1988 as part of this importation. It is reported to be French clone 665. The original material underwent microshoot tip tissue culture therapy soon after arriving at FPS. After successful completion of testing for the California Grapevine Registration & Certification Program, Pinot noir 51 was planted in the FPS Classic Foundation Vineyard in 1997.

Comments The Domaine Chandon Winery in the Carneros District of Napa Valley, California, donated a Pinot noir selection to FPS in 1996. They called it the Christina clone. The original material tested RSP+ but was eligible for advancement in the program. The original donated material was registered as Pinot noir FPS 55 in 2001. At a later time, a plant produced from the original material using microshoot tip tissue culture to eliminate the RSP was advanced to become Pinot noir FPS 87. Pinot noir FPS 87 also appeared on the registered list in 2001.

Comments Sometime before 1966, three Pinot noir selections for Foundation Plant Services were collected out of the Martini clonal trial set up by Dr. Harold Olmo (U.C. Davis Department of Viticulture & Enology) and Louis Martini in a vineyard located on Stanly Lane in Carneros. Two of the selections (that ultimately became Pinot noir 13 and 66) were taken from the same row at Stanly Lane. Each row of the Stanly Lane trial contained a different Martini clone. All of row 7 was planted with Martini clone 58. The plant material for this selection (Pinot noir 66) was collected from one of the Martini clone 58 vines. This selection did not undergo heat treatment at FPS. Pinot noir 13 was also collected from row 7 of the trial and was Martini clone 58; however, Pinot noir 13 underwent heat treatment at FPS. The untreated Martini 58 material was included in the Carneros Creek Trials as the "Carneros Creek V clone". The V clone was later donated to FPS in 1996 by Francis Mahoney from the Carneros Creek Pinot noir trial. After successful completion of testing for the California Grapevine Registration & Certification Program, Pinot noir 66 was planted in the FPS Classic Foundation Vineyard in 1999. It is likely that Pinot noir 13 and 66 originated from the same source.

Comments Sometime before 1966, two Pinot noir selections for Foundation Plant Services were collected out of the Martini clonal trial set up by Dr. Harold Olmo (U.C. Davis Department of Viticulture & Enology) and Louis Martini in a vineyard located on Stanly Lane in Carneros. The selections were taken from two different vines in row 17 of the Martini trial. All of row 17 was designated by Olmo as Martini clone 58. Those initial two clones were eventually released as Pinot noir 13 and 15 at FPS. The plant material for this selection (Pinot noir 66) was also derived from Martini 58 but was donated to FPS in 1996 by Francis Mahoney from his Carneros Creek Pinot noir trial. This California heritage Pinot noir clone is known as the 'Carneros Creek V clone'. After successful completion of testing for the California Grapevine Registration & Certification Program, Pinot noir 66 was planted in the FPS Classic Foundation Vineyard in 1999. At the same time that the original material was undergoing testing, backup vines for Pinot noir 66 were created using microshoot tip tissue culture therapy. After successful completion of testing, the backup vines were also planted in the FPS Classic Foundation Vineyard but without assigning an official selection number. Those backup vines successfully completed testing under the 2010 Protocol in 2011, after which they were planted in the Russell Ranch Foundation Vineyard as Pinot noir 66.1. It is likely that Pinot noir 13, 15 and 66 originated from the same source (Martini 58).

Comments The original material for this selection came to Foundation Plant Services in the early 1960's from an old vineyard on the campus of the University of California, Davis. That vineyard was maintained by the Department of Viticulture & Enology. This selection was one of a group of Pinot noir selections at FPS that have been known as the Gamay Beaujolais type, which are characterized by high vigor and an upright growth habit. The records show that all five selections in this group were derived from the same single vine source at the University of California, Davis (location I60 v 15). This selection was initially planted in the FPS foundation vineyard as Pinot noir 21, which was dropped from the list of registered vines in 1982 because it tested leafroll positive. In 1999, Pinot noir 104 was created from Pinot noir 21 using microshoot tip tissue culture disease elimination therapy. After successful completion of testing for the California Registration & Certification Program, Pinot noir 104 was planted in the FPS Classic Foundation Vineyard in 2003.

The material was collected from location L3v5 and was initially labeled 'Pinot franc' and 'Pinot St. George'. After index testing at FPS, vines were planted in the old FPS foundation vineyard in 1967 as Pinot noir 29. Pinot noir 29 never attained registered status in the California Grapevine Registration & Certification Program because of concerns about the varietal identification. Oregon researchers included Pinot noir 29 in several of their clonal trials and rated it in the highest wine quality group. Due that interest, the disease tests were repeated on Pinot noir 29 in the late 1990's in order to qualify it for the R&C Program. In 1998, Pinot noir 29 underwent microshoot tip tissue culture therapy to eliminate leafroll virus. After successful completion of testing for the California R&C Program, the treated selection was planted in the FPS Classic Foundation Vineyard in 2003 under the new name Pinot noir 106. The varietal identification of the selection as Pinot noir was confirmed by DNA analysis at FPS in 2006.

This Hanzel wood was the source for clone 'E'. The original plant material for this selection underwent microshoot tip tissue culture therapy at FPS in 1997. After successful completion of testing for the California Grapevine Registration & Certification Program, Pinot noir 108 was planted in the FPS Classic Foundation Vineyard in 2004. Pinot noir 108 successfully completed testing under the 2010 Protocol and will be planted in the Russell Ranch Foundation Vineyard as Pinot noir 108.1.

Comments This selection was one of two Pinot noir clones imported to Foundation Plant Services in 1966 from Wädenswil, Switzerland. (USDA-ARS P.I. number 312435-C-1). The plant material was labeled 'Clevner Mariafeld' selections of Blau Burgunder (synonym for Pinot noir). The original plant material was indexed and then planted in the old foundation vineyard in 1969 as Pinot noir 17. Pinot noir 17 was removed from the California Grapevine Registration & Certification Program in 1980 because it tested positive for Rupestris stem pitting virus, which at the time was not allowed in the California program. Pinot noir 17 underwent microshoot tip tissue culture therapy at FPS in 1999. After successful completion of testing for the California R&C Program, the treated plant material was installed in the FPS Classic Foundation Vineyard in 2005 as Pinot noir 109.
