Ghislain Kohut, a relatively newer name in the esteemed world of Burgundian winemaking, has been garnering attention for producing expressive and finely crafted wines. Situated in Marsannay, the northernmost appellation of Burgundy's Côte de Nuits, Kohut’s approach marries traditional winemaking with a modern touch. The 'En Mormain' Marsannay Blanc 2020 is a testament to Kohut's dedication to quality, showcasing the potential of white wines in a region more commonly known for reds.

Wine: Ghislain Kohut 'En Mormain' Marsannay Blanc 2020

Appearance: The wine displays a bright, golden hue, suggesting a richness and depth characteristic of well-crafted Burgundian whites.

Aroma: A bouquet of fresh citrus, green apple, and a hint of white flowers greets the nose, accompanied by subtle notes of almond and a whisper of minerality, indicative of the Marsannay terroir.

Taste: On the palate, the wine reveals a delightful balance between fruitiness and acidity. Flavors of lemon zest, pear, and a touch of honeydew melon are present, complemented by a creamy texture and a nuanced oak influence that adds complexity without overpowering the fruit.

Finish: The finish is elegant and lingering, with a refreshing acidity and a persistent fruity-mineral interplay that invites another sip.

Food Pairings:

  1. Cape Grim Steak Tartare with Spiced Egg Emulsion, Mung Sprouts, Baby Caper, and Yolk: The wine's crisp acidity and fruit-forward profile will beautifully balance the rich flavors of the steak tartare, with its subtle complexity elevating the spiced egg emulsion.

  2. Truffle Gnocchi with Wild Fungi, Provolone, Parsley, Cavolo Nero, and Garlic Butter Sugo: The creamy and nuanced flavors of the Marsannay Blanc will pair exquisitely with the earthy and aromatic components of the dish, creating a harmonious fusion of taste and texture.
