Natalie's Score: 87/100

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.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
