A range split equally between regional appellations and Chambolle-Musigny (plus recent addition of a small quantity of Nuits St Georges). Much emphasis here placed on the quality of the regional appellations. The very limited production levels and the reputation that the domaine has built for itself in barely 10 years ensures that almost all appellations are virtually sold out by the time the wines are released and current availability only extends to a handful of wines. The “boutique” nature of this domaine dictates that only small allocations are available in any year. However, the rapidly rising status of Domaine Digioia-Royer puts it firmly within the class of highly desirable and sought after estates in this particular village, where supply of quality wine is arguably at its most acute.
The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Villages comes from two parcels with an average of 65 years and sees 20% new oak. It has a nicely focused bouquet with tightly wound black cherries and blueberry fruit. It feels timid at first, although gains more intensity with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy blackberry and raspberry fruit, grippy in the mouth and just a little "blocky" on the finish. I came away thinking a bit of stem addition might have benefited this cuvée, but still, let's see how it turns out. At the moment this lags behind the superior Vieilles Vignes. - The Wine Advocate
