Semi-classic grape (known to be one of the recently determined, 1999, direct descendants of the ancient Pinot cepage x Gouais Blanc crossing) widely grown in temperate regions of France, California and Eastern Europe. There are reportedly two mutated varieties grown in the Bouzeron AOC of Burgundy, the productive Aligoté Vert that ripens early with a tendency to high acidity, and the Aligoté Doré having a moderate yield with higher sugar levels than the former variety in cooler years. They are used to make a superior white wine, with little or no aging ability and best drunk young, for blending or as a good dry wine in the better vintage years in Burgundy, France. Successfully used in the cooler western coastal regions of North and South America.
