Piollot

The French winery "Champagne Piollot Père & Fils" is located in the municipality of Polisot (Aube department) in Champagne. The estate was founded by Athanase Piollot (1817-1906). Today it is run by Robert and his son Roland Piollot. The vineyards cover 8.5 hectares of vines, planted with the varieties Pinot Noir (62%), Chardonnay (20%), Pinot Blanc (11%), Pinot Meunier and Arbane. Some of the vines are very old, selected by cloning. In the vineyard, biological (organic) viticulture is practised in combination with biodynamic methods. The farm is certified by ECOCERT since 2014. The exclusively organic fertilization is done with self-produced compost (e.g. grape marc). During the vegetation cycle a lot of attention is paid to foliage care. The fermentation is partly spontaneous with yeasts from the vineyard. The champagnes mature for three to six years on the yeast. Oversize sizes in magnum (1.5 l) and Jeroboam (3 l) are also available. Premium products include "Les Gravelées Rosé" (100% Pinot Noir, 3 years, 0 Dosage, unsulphurised) and Colas Robin (100% Pinot Blanc, 3 years, 0 Dosage).
