The white grape variety comes from France. Synonyms are Albin Blanc, Aubain, Aubier, Aubin, Blanc de Creuë, Blanc de Magny and Gros Vert de Crenay. It must not be confused with the Aubin Vert or Gros Vert varieties, despite the fact that synonyms or morphological similarities seem to indicate this. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2013, it is a presumably natural cross between Gouais Blanc (Heunisch) x Savagnin Blanc(Traminer), but the sire variety is questionable. It was first mentioned in 1829. The early maturing vine produces aromatic white wines with moderate acidity. The variety, which is threatened with extinction, is cultivated in Lorraine in the Moselle region in only small quantities. In 2016, a stock of less than one hectare was declared (statistics Kym Anderson).
