The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Aligotay, Aligoté Blanc, Aligotte, Alligotay, Alligoté, Alligotet, Aliqote, Beaunié, Beaunois, Chaudenet Gras, Giboudot, Giboudot Blanc, Giboulot, Giboulot Blanc, Griset Blanc, Plant de Trois, Plant de Trois Raisins, Plant Gris, Purion Blanc, Troyen Blanc, Vert Blanc (France); Mukhranuli (Georgia); Carcairone Blanc (Italy); Aligote Bijeli (ex. Yugoslavia); Mahranauli (Moldova). Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it should not be confused with the varieties Chardonnay (Beaunois), Melon de Bourgogne, Sacy (Aligoté Vert) or Welschriesling. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2018, it comes from a presumed natural parentage between Gouais Blanc (Heunisch) x Pinot. The early-maturing, high-yielding vine is susceptible to downy mildew and botrytis. It produces white wines with high acidity. These are mainly used for the production of simple still wines as well as sparkling wines. The variety was a parent in the new variety Zagrei.
