Lovely blackcurrants on the nose, with a touch of wet forest floor. Refined cherries, raspberries and blackcurrants in the mouth. Lovely body and weight. Silky tannins, and a persistence that begs for another sip.
Domaine Ghislain Kohut is a small family winery with around 10 hectares of vines spread over 80 small plots. The winery is based in Marsannay, in the north of the Côte d'Or, the heart of Burgundy. In addition to the AOPs Marsannay and Fixin, Ghislain Kohut, who took over the vineyards from his grandfather, also cultivates small plots in Gevrey-Chambertin and Vosne-Romanée, even a little Echézeaux Grand Cru. The methods of wine-making are very traditional and natural, so of course harvest is done by hand and they use horses for the plowing to avoid compressing the soil.
