Aligoté

The white grape variety originates from France. Synonyms grouped alphabetically by country are Aligotte, Alligotay, Alligoté, Alligotet, Beaunié, Beaunois, Chaudenet Gras, Giboudot, Giboudot Blanc, Giboulot, Giboulot Blanc, Griset Blanc, Plant de Trois, Plant Gris, Troyen Blanc, Vert Blanc (France); Mukhranuli (Georgia); Carcairone Blanc (Italy); Aligote Bijeli (ex. Yugoslavia); Mahranauli (Moldova). Despite seemingly suggestive synonyms or morphological similarities, it must not be confused with the varieties Chardonnay (Beaunois), Melon de Bourgogne, Sacy (Aligoté Vert) or Welschriesling. DNA analyses carried out in 1999 revealed the probable natural parentage Gouais Blanc (Heunisch) x Pinot. This 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 easy-to-consume still wines and sparkling wines
