2005 was an exceptionally good year throughout the Côte de Nuits and Charles Thomas produced this delicious A.O.C. Gevrey-Chambertin Champfranc from Pinot Noir vines in this most famous of Burgundy red wine villages. The wines were very concentrated as a result of a dry growing season and a warm, sunny fortnight preceding the harvest. Master of Wine Clive Coates says that wines of this vintage "have depth, finesse, harmony and the potential to last."

Typical flavours of this village Gevrey-Chambertin are of red fruits with a somewhat savoury edge. On the nose are to be found the typical perfume of red fruits with a hint of leather. This wine will drink until at least 2020 and will accompany traditional Burgundian dishes such as coq au vin as well as roast beef and feathered game. An affordable treat for lovers of mature red Burgundy.
