Details

Piollot Rose de Maceration, Organic Champagne, wild yeast, long maceration on the Pinot Noir skins. This is a delicious expressive glass of artisan Champagne. Roland makes very interesting and deliciously authentic wines, none more so than his Rose de Maceration. These are wines which are made using an age old process unique to the southern part of the Champagne region, the Cote des Bars where Piollot are based. In the north, they make rose by adding some red wine to the white before the wine goes into bottle for the second fermentation. In the Cote des Bars where the grape of choice has always been Pinot Noir, they macerate the whole bunch for a few days, effectively starting to make red wine from the fruit before draining off the deep pink juice and then completing the second fermentation in bottle of this almost a red/pink wine. The Champagne produced is fascinating and complex with much of the red wine notes of a glass of good red burgundy, slightly gamey, with ripe strawberry and flowers. The fizz is delicate and the wine very fresh. It is delicious with barbecued fish or some little lamb cutlets or even a carpaccio of beef. Not quite the feminine pink stuff of the north of Champagne for toasts and parties, this is a much more genuine glass of artisan fizz!


Roland Piollot has been working in the vineyard since the 1980s, taking over from his father, though the estate has been in the family since 1817. The estate is now certified organic and employs some biodynamic methods to ensure the health and vitality of the vines, and only indigenous yeasts are used. Situated in Polisot, on the Cote des Bars, the whole process takes place on the domaine. The majority of the estate is planted with Pinot Noir, though some of the vineyard is dedicated to Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Blanc and Arbanne. We believe that their champagnes are an authentic taste of Champagne, and offer a great price for a boutique label.
