Sylvain Bock Reviens Gamay!
Grapes: Gamay, 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.
Reviens is a savoury, lightly funky Gamay in the Ardeche style co-fermented with 10% Chardonnay for added fruitiness. Made from grapes grown in granite soils, there's an appealing earthy minerality going on too.
