Marechal Foch

Marechal Foch Wine Details

Description: Although visually similar to a big Bordeaux red, Marechal Foch is neither Bordeaux or Burgundian. Instead, it offers a sensory experience all its own with its unique labrusca bouquet, flavor hints of figs and prunes, and a full yet crisp mouth feel. Pair this wine as you would any red, with hearty dishes. It goes particularly well with lamb, venison, and fowl; especially roast duck.

Varietal Definition
Marechal Foch:
A french-american hybrid grape, with french Alsace Gamay origins, noted for producing deeply colored and strongly varietal wines considered by some to have a "Burgundian" character. Also known under the name Foch.
