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
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!
