Christophe Foucher's vineyards are on a hill above the Cher river, about a mile east of the Clos Roche Blanche. He produces tiny quantities of distinctive natural wines from Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Sauvignon Blanc and Menu Pineau, including superb "micro-cuvées" that occasionally reach the US at Chambers Street. "2 Temps en Temps" is a fantastic and successful experiment of about 800 bottles—Menu Pineau from 2008 and 2009 fermented and aged "sous-voile" in an old barrel without SO2, bottled in early 2014. Light gold/bronze color. Superb, rather intense aromas of hay, lemon oil, pear, almond and white chocolate. The palate is mineral and saline with citrus, pear and herbal flavors. Fabulous length with dusty stone and citrus in the finish. Just delicious! This is a beautifully intense sous-voile wine that will be perfect with ceviche and shellfish, coq au vin jaune aux morilles, strong cheeses....
