The "Release Notes" for Aperture 2.1.4 only say "Mac OS X 10.5.3 Leopard or later" - this does not exclude Mt. Lion.
This poster seems to be using Aperture 2 on Mt. Lion:
I am running aperture 2.1.4 and am considering purchasing the latest version. will my photos, projects, and folders etc. transfer over automatically ?
But if you can afford it, try Aperture 3 (perhaps wait a little longer- we are all hoping for a release of Aperture 4 - it is overdue )

Then again, of course, those release notes were written years ago… I expect it's not officially supported (Apple are well known for not supporting anything vaguely out of date) but it seems to run well on Lion, so I'm hoping the same might hold true for Mountain Lion too. Perhaps it'd be worth me posting in that other thread – thanks for the pointer.
As for Aperture 3, I tried the 30-day demo back when it was available and whilst I liked it, I didn't really feel it offered me enough of anything new to warrant upgrading to it. I suspect I may well upgrade to 4 though – if it ever sees the light of day…

Hmm, thanks for that, although I've been running Lion since it came out and not encountered any problems with Aperture 2 yet. It could be that there's just one obscure little feature which doesn't work that I've never even tried using.

I've had a reply in the thread Léonie linked to, and it seems to answer the question: Mountain Lion and Aperture 2 apparently don't mix very well, unfortunately. Thanks for everyone's input.
