Marechal Foch

Overall Impression
Marechal Foch can produce fruity wines that loosely resemble Pinot Noir. Carbonic maceration is often practiced with this variety. Early ripening and cold hardiness make this a great cold climate choice.
History
Marechal Foch is a French hybrid that was bred in Alsace and has the vinifera variety Goldriesling as a parent. This variety was once grown widely in the Loire Valley and is currently very popular in eastern Canada and New York state.
