|Samson Ling reviewed this wine as follows:|
Able to thrive in cool climates such as Ontario, Foch (aka Maréchal Foch) can produce fully ripe, well-structured reds. This hybrid grape (along with Baco Noir) helped prove Ontario's mettle as a region capable of serious red wines. This version from Malivoire may be the grape's ultimate expression. It's concentrated and delivers plenty of solid dark fruit character with a touch of rustic charm. 'Albert's Honour' is a tribute to Martin Malivoire's great uncle, who was awarded the French Legion of Honour medal for heroism in World War I.
