Léon Millot

The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between the rootstock vine Millardet et Grasset 101-14 - open-pollinated (Riparia x Rupestris ) x Goldriesling (1). Synonyms are 194-2 Kuhlmann, Frühe Schwarze, Kuhlmann 194-2 and Millot. Genes of Vitis riparia, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera are included. The hybrid was crossed in 1911 at the Oberlin Institute in Colmar-Alsace by the breeder Eugène Kuhlmann (1858-1932). The variety was named in honour of the president of Société vosgienne de viticulture et d'ampélographie Léon Millot (1881-1960). The same parents also produced the new varieties Etoile I, Etoile II, Lucie Kuhlmann, Maréchal Foch, Maréchal Joffre and Pinard. The Léon Millot variety was also a crossing partner in the new Millot-Foch variety.

Serious sources on the internet are rare - and Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one such source. When researching for my articles, I regularly consult the wein.plus encyclopaedia. There I get reliable and detailed information.
