Michel Digioia has been running Domaine Digioia-Royer in Chambolle Musigny since 1999. In 2003 he decided to manually bottle all of his wine himself. Now the clients are lining up and most of his premier crus are sold two years in advance. The domaine was created in the early 1930's, in a way that was the beginning of the era of the grand vins. People were starting to bottle a little bit themselves.
Chambolle-Musigny is one of the most well known villages on the Cote de Nuits. The cellars of Domaine Digioia-Royer is located right in the middle of the village, up on the tiny Rue du Carr. Michel Digioia is the 3rd generation of the domaine. Domaine Digioia-Royer has a strong focus on Chambolle-Musigny; all the village and premier cru wines are from the village. The Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes comes from 80-year-old vines in Les Fremieres.
