Shizuoka Sake Tasting 7-4: Fuji-Takasago Brewery

Please check Shizuoka Gourmet Blog for all the gastronomy in Shizuoka Prefecture!



This is the third bottle tasted by the Shizuoka Geeks on December 7th, 2007

Takasago Daiginjo “Soleil”
I was told that the owner of Fuji-Takasago Brewery had a soft spot for French wines, hence the name “Soleil/Sun”! He went as far as mentioning: “Mis en bouteille par Fuji-Takasago Syozo et Cie Fujinomiya Shizuoka, Produit de Japon” (only one small mistake, LOL).
It was even corked!
A very extravagant sake, I wonder if the Shizuoka Geeks realized they were drinking nectar!

Only one metion:
Rice milled down to 35%

Clarity: Very clear

Colour: Golden hue

Aroma: Light, flowery

Body: velvety

Taste: Elegant/Fruits/Strawberries.
Lingers long in mouth with more strawberries and flowers/coffee beans.
Bitter chocolate appears with food.

Overall: Elegant. Very easy to drink. A session sake, although perfect with food!

    Definitely decadent.
    Actually we decided to finish it before the two Hana no Mai as I had to leave early!
