Piollot Brut Réserve
In 1765, Joseph Plateau was born in Cumières, and became the first generation to acquire vineyards. He threw himself into the wine business and founded “Maison Plateau.” Eight other generations followed this first one: Rémy Plateau, sixth generation, was the creator of the first brand, “Champagne Rémy Plateau”; his daughter, Yvette Plateau married Guy Vadin, who, in 1958, renamed the brand “Champagne Vadin-Plateau” and gained its current status of Grower-Producer by installing a press.
Today, the brand continues with Yann Vadin. He is guiding the family domaine in a new direction by converting all of the vineyards to organic farming and experimenting with keeping chickens in the vineyards to provide natural fertilizer. As his parents continue to produce traditional cuvées, Yann has crafted his own range from experimental biodynamic vineyards, including single vineyard cuvées aged in concrete eggs.
