Leon Millot

An artificial hybrid of Millardet and Grasset 101-14 OP and Goldriesling created in 1911 at Colmar (Alsace, F), Léon Millot was named after the President of the Vosges Society of Viticulture. It is a full-sibling of the Lucie Kuhlmann and Maréchal Foch varieties. A very early and resistant variety, it is grown in Switzerland in cooler climates, mainly in German-speaking Switzerland, where it produces intensely coloured wines.
