Domaine Piollot Père et Fils is an old wine grower's family. Athanase Piollot (1817-1906) was the first member living in Polisot and working as a winemaker. For generations, the sons have expanded the father's work. 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 while most of his neighbors were replanting to Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. In 1986, Roland began to take over for his father and was the first to convert 100% of the domain to only Champagne production. In 2009 he began converting to organic winegrowing, with a total certification in 2014.
Today, the Piollot vineyards are planted 100% in selection massale with the following varietals :
62% Pinot Noir
8% Pinot Meunier
10% Pinot Blanc and a little Arbanne
Over half of the vineyard is more than 40 years old. The soil is clay-limestone, consisting of marlstone on Kimmeridgien subsoil. "Feeling, breathing, evolving with observation are what has pushed us down this road" as well as the perseverance and dedication with which Roland and his father work on these grapes and these vines.
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.
