Domaine Ponsot is the only estate in Morey-St-Denis making a single vineyard premier cru white using 100% Aligoté. Made from old vines planted in 1911, the latest 2014 vintage, however, will be the last vintage made from the old vines, according to the domaine, as replanting is planned. According to Abel, Aligoté was the go-to white grape in Burgundy before Chardonnay was planted following the phylloxera outbreak in the late 19th century.
