Michel Digioia is a meticulous vigneron and his work in the vineyards enables him to make very expressive Chambolle-Musigny. He uses very little new wood, 20% new on his "Fremieres" for example. He makes four different wines; his village bottling is from vines averaging sixty years old, his “Fremieres” is from 80-year-old vines, his “Gruenchers” from 25-year-old vines, and his very rare Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Groseilles” from 70-year-old vines. (“Groseilles” means “red currants)

"Les Groseilles” is one of the truly rare wines of the Côte D'Or. The vineyard was planted in 1935 and is only 1.34 hectares. It’s located below and bordered by “Gruenchers,” between “Les Combottes” and “Les Noirots,” and above “Aux Beaux Bruns.” It is big and rich for a Chambolle-Musigny, perhaps more like a Bonnes Mares than a Musigny. It seems that Digioa-Royer is the only source for “Groseilles.”
