Sylvain Bock Elle m’a Serré
Grapes: Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay
Sylvain Bock has made natural wine in the town of Alba-la-Romaine in the Ardèche since 2010. His vineyards are mainly basalt and limestone and all are farmed organically. Sylvain is strongly committed to biodiversity which he sees as key to the wellbeing of the soil and vines and his lands teems with wild flowers and insect life.
Sylvain’s first fully macerated white — here he macerated a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay for 7 days on the skins with each variety spending 1 months in tank. There's a wonderful display of stone fruits and pretty florals with a gentle structure and refreshing acid line.
