2005 Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes Les Fremières, Digioia-Royer

Ref: DIGI050
Red  |  Still  |  13.5% ABV

This small (just shy of 7ha) domaine is slap-bang in the centre of Chambolle. Working by lutte raisonée (i.e. supervised control: the use of treatments only when specifically necessary), Michel Digioia took over the vines of his parents-in-law in 1999 and has recently added a little Nuits St Georges to his cuvées of Chambolle-Musigny

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

The colour of this wine in the glass is stunning. Stunning also sums up the purity of the red fruit aromas that waft upward when you give this a swirl. The best wines of 2005 (and here I include this chappie) have a delightful balance of rich fruit and fresh crunch and one finds this here. Lovely cool and complete wine in the mouth, the antiquity of the vines lending a silken richness to the fruit. Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
