A variety from Alsace-Lorraine (F), Auxerrois should not be confused with Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris or Chardonnay, which were also referred to as Auxerrois at one point, probably in reference to Auxois, the old name for Alsace. DNA tests have shown that it is the natural descendant of Pinot and Gouais Blanc, and thus a full-sibling of Chardonnay, Gamay, Aligoté and other minor varieties. In Switzerland, Auxerrois is now rarely grown, but it may be similar to the (H)Aussard or Ausserres variety which was very common in the 18th and 19th centuries in the cantons of Neuchâtel and Vaud. The wine has a relatively neutral flavour, with low acidity levels.
