Léon Millot

The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between the rootstock vine Millardet et Grasset 101-14 - open flowered (Riparia x Rupestris) x Gold Riesling (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-Elsass 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). With the same parents, the new varieties Etoile I, Etoile II, Lucie Kuhlmann, Maréchal Foch, Maréchal Joffre and Pinard were created. The variety Léon Millot was also a crossing partner in the new Millot-Foch breed.
