I may have had something sweet before this, but it was never going to put this wine in the shade.
2010 Digioia-Royer, Hautes Côtes de Nuits
Medium-plus colour. The nose starts with a bit of fizz but is short-lived and replaced with dark-skinned cherry. The first instinct is that the acidity is on the bright side but then you’re engulfed by flavour, not too sweet, and dark-fruit shaded. This is a dancer that doesn’t wait for you to make up your mind, it just plucks you from your seat and twirls you around. Smooth texture, understated tannin – be prepared to dance! I’d drink it young to enjoy every bit of its energy!
