In 1978 Vance Rose had a bottle of 1959 Chambertin Clos de Beze and ever since he has been in pursuit of great Pinot Noir. After 27 years in the wine business, he began to make his own together with Tom Habbick. Simply one letter, simple label, one Pinot Noir.
The second release from the 2007 vintage comes from two sites in the Sonoma Coast AVA. The wine is sold through a mailing list.
