Roland Piollot and Dominique Moreau
Champagne Piollot is produced by Roland Piollot and his wine Dominique Moreau from vines owned by Roland's family in the Aube. The vineyards are located primarily in the town of Polisot. Roland's father was extremely passionate about vineyard work, and replanted all of his vineyards using the selection massale method, and even kept some of the old Pinot Blanc vineyards that most of his neighbors were replanting to Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. In 1986, Roland decided to bottle the wines himself, and since 2009, they have converted the vines to organic farming. The house style is based on crisp, refreshing champagnes that are elegant and easy to drink.
