Piollot

Husband and wife team Roland Piollot and Dominique Moreau farm 8.5ha of vines that have been passed down through Roland's family for generations. If Dominique's name sounds familiar, that is because she is also the founder and winemaker of Champagne Marie Courtin, based in the same village in the Côte des Bars, Polisot. In 1986, Roland decided to bottle the wines from the family estate himself, and since 2009, Dominique has joined on to help work in the vineyards and cellar, converting the farming to organic and biodynamic (now certified). Roland's father was extremely passionate about vineyard work and replanted all of his vineyards using the selection massale method, even keeping some of the old Pinot Blanc vineyards that most of his neighbors were replanting to Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. The house style is based on crisp, refreshing champagnes that are elegant and easy to drink.
