Lucie Kuhlmann

The red grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Millardet et Grasset 101-14 S.P. (Riparia x Rupestris ) x Goldriesling (1). Synonyms are Kuhlmann 149-3 and Lucy Kuhlmann. 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 French breeder Eugène Kuhlmann (1858-1932), who named it after his wife. Incidentally, the same parents also produced the new varieties Etoile I, Etoile II, Léon Millot, Maréchal Foch, Maréchal Joffre and Pinard. The very early ripening vine is moderately resistant to frost, as well as to fungal diseases in general. It produces dark-coloured, strong red wines with herbal aromas. The variety is grown in small quantities in France, as well as in Canada in the areas of Nova Scotia, Ontario and Quebec. In 2016, 21 hectares of vines were reported (Kym Anderson statistics).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
