Domaine Digioia Royer is run by Michel Digioia and was established in the 1930s by his wife’s grandparents. The Domaine is well known for its precise, meticulously made wines bearing the hallmarks of high quality. Even by Burgundian standards the Domaine is considered to be small but it is actually one of Burgundy’s rising stars. The Domaine’s wines are centred on Chambolle Musigny and besides Les Gruenchers it also has Premier Cru Les Groseilles in its portfolio. The vineyard of Les Gruenchers lies below Premier Cru Les Fuees and is a continuation of the plateau of Bonnes Mares.
The village AOC Chambolle Musigny is one of the most well known Burgundian villages of the Cote de Nuits but is also one of the smallest. It is home to around 25 Premier Crus and 2 Grand Cru vineyards: Musigny and Bonnes Mares. The wines of Chambolle Musigny are typically described as the most ‘feminine’ among the red wines of the Cote de Nuits, being the epitomie of perfumed elegance and refined power. Along with Vosnee Romanee and Gevery Chambertain, Chambolle Musigny is renowned for producing some of the finest Pinot Noirs on earth.
Long lived and beautifully mature, Domaine Digioia Royer’s Les Gruenchers comes from the magnificent 1999 vintage. Sophisticated and delicious Les Gruenchers 1999 pairs well with roast pork, duck and lamb, beef, poultry and feathered game such as guinea fowl, pheasant, turkey, chicken as well as rich casseroles (coq au vin), mushroom based dishes, lobster, soft and/or blue cheeses.
