Roland Piollot


Domaine Piollot, Champagne

The estate of Champagne Piollot is farmed by Roland Piollot and his wife Dominique Moreau (who also owns Champagne Marie Courtin). The vines have been owned by Roland's family for decades in the Aube region.

In 1986, Roland decided to start making wines himself, and since 2009, he has converted the vines to organic farming only and uses his own compost. The house champagnes are very refreshing and easy-drinking - keeping their elegance and delicacy.

"Learning to wait, knowing when to take action only when needed." - Roland Piollot
