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!
