Marechal Foch

Marechal Foch (aka. Foch, Kuhlmann 188-2) is a vigorous, early-ripening variety, with good winter hardiness. It is well suited to cold-climate regions in Canada’s Niagara Peninsula and Nova Scotia. It is also popular in New York’s Finger Lakes, the north Atlantic States, and in viticultural areas of the northern Midwest. Still commercially important, this French-American hybrid developed by Eugene Kuhlmann is reportedly the result of a North American riparia-rupestris and a vinifera (Goldriesling) pairing. This is identical to the parentage of the Leon Millot grape. However, some believe the North American parent is really Oberlin Noir, a Gamay-riparia cross once commercially cultivated in Burgundy. Whatever the true genealogy of the cultivar, Marechal Foch is often considered to possess Burgundian characteristics, having a vibrant, deep purple color, with a light-medium structure and dark berry fruit characteristics. Some tasters find the similarities to Burgundy Pinot Noir become more pronounced Read more »

  • Lambrusco Reggiano Frizzante Medici Ermete Concerto 2015


    A dry version of the Frizzante Lambrusco is very good, with a nice vinous nose ... nose (similar to the hybrid Marechal Foch) and soft, acidic entry. Very grapey, but somehow deep at the same time, this wine is quite enjoyable, and one of the better examples this reviewer has tasted. 8 Read More

  • Sperling Vineyards Old Vines Foch 2009


    A really interesting, almost confusing wine. Foch is a new variety for me. Lots of savoury notes on the nose (think sweet tobacco/cigar box) and slightly burnt made me think of stereotypical old world wines. The palate was a HUGE surprise given the nose, light and bright and with lots of acidity and fruit. Light bodied. This wine wa... Read More

  •  Airlie lists their Marechal Foch at 3.48 but no other Willamette Valley Winery I could find gives decent spec sheets on their websites. Pretty clunky e-commerce sites for the most part.The Airlie Müller-Thurgau shows 3.12 in 2012 and 3.08 in 2009. Wow, thats a pretty tart wine.  Read More

  • A Willamette Valley Foch 2007, this is my topic and would like to discuss the pH of this wine with Julia, which I believe is my mentor. Dunn Forest is one, Muller Thurgau is the other. As a beginner on this site I have no idea where to go and must admit that I am overwhelmed by the amount of alleys you could get lost into. I am so sorry for my i... Read More

  • Recline Ridge Marechal Foch 2010


    Another very creditable Foch from Recline Ridge (North Okanagan BC). A slightly reclusive nose of coffee, hickory smoke, plum and sloe with a smooth, creamy entry and a cranberry and fresh leather finish. As expected, not complex but deep like a northern Beaujolais cru. Good control over the natural acidity of the variety. 87 points. Read More
