Dear Champagne Lover,
Time to lock and reload your grower Champagne stock with wines from Champagne Piollot, the second Balanced Wine Selections’ grower! I’m sure the holidays took a toll on your Champagne installation, but in our opinion because Champagne is for so much more than the holidays or special occasions, it’s time to replenish.
Today we have three wines, from three different grapes, from three different sites in the Cotes des Bar from the husband and wife winemaking team of Roland Piollot and Dominique Moreau (yes that Dominique Moreau of Champagne Marie-Courtin fame).
Roland and Dominique hail from the small village of Polisot where Roland’s father and three generations before him have been making wine. We are thrilled to have the chance to offer three exceptional cuvees (all made in a no dosage style) from Roland and Dominique:
In the words of David Schildknecht from Vinous, “Austria’s 2013 Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners display exceptionally bright acidity, clear flavor definition and uncanny complexity.” 2013 has given us the stunning combination of healthy, ripe grapes that remain light on their feet as the alcohol levels stayed in check, married with focused, tense acidity.
