The Aligote is a white wine grape used in the Burgundy region of France. The wines made from the Aligote grape are generally considered unimpressive, but it is still used to make a few wines.  Chardonnay replaced most of the Aligote as new plantings took place since Chardonnay grapes usually fetch a higher price.  Most Aligote is grown on poorer soils that do not produce other grapes well.

Aligote can be found in Eastern Europe and as an oddity in other parts of the world including California and Australia.  It is not of particular significance in any of those areas.
