Vintages Wine Panel: In a cool-climate wine region, such as Ontario, Foch (or Maréchal Foch, to use its full name) produces fully ripe, well-structured reds. This hybrid grape (along with Baco Noir) helped prove Ontario’s mettle as a place for serious red wines. This version delivers plenty of solid dark fruit character, good concentration, and 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. My note: A strapping big wine with surprisingly vibrant acidity and mouth-watering juiciness. Purple and black plums dance across your mouth. Robust, rustic and delicious.
