Léon Millot (Foster)

A red variety of hybrid grape used for wine production. Created by Eugène Kuhlmann in 1911 at the Oberlin Institute in Colmar, Alsace by crossing Millardet et Grasset with Goldriesling. Léon Millot ripens early, and has high resistance to fungal diseases. It is therefore suited for cultivation in colder climates. It makes a good Burgundy style wine and is full bodied.

Léon Millot was the product of the same crossing trials as Maréchal Foch.
