Gozenshu Gen is pale straw colored with a cloudy appearance. The notes are initially those of steam cooked rice. Then stronger  candied pears aromas appear, pear compote and honey notes, all with an incredible freshness. Nose is very «spumante» and gives the impression that the mouth is filled with pearls. The mouth is mellow, sweet, with a touch of Chenin de Loire, wine late harvests; impression of a sweet semi-dry, of pear compote or pie, with light salted butter caramel accents.

Our perfect combination : We suggest drinking this Gozenshu with blue cheese (roquefort, fourme d’Ambert, gorgonzola) or ideally with a pear compote on a flaky pastry and a zest of lemon or yuzu marmalade (as a contrast, the fat answers the acid). This sake will also pair with baked foie gras slices, foie gras terrine, Marsala veal escalope, veal kidneys cooked with Madeira wine, pasta with cream ...

Our tip
Rotate the bottle (head to tail) 2 or 3 times. Rice starch saccharification generates glucose, which is more dense than the rest of the liquid. The glucose is at the bottom of the bottle and this rotation helps spreading uniformly throughout the bottle.

KATSUYAMA SUPRÊME SAKÉ

The nihonshu of the Lords

Katsuyama sake brewery established in the second half of the 17th century, more precisely between 1650 and 1688, in the current Prefecture of Miyagi controlled then by a very powerful Samurai Chief (Sengoku Daimyõ) answering the name Date Masamune. The region of Sendaï was his Kingdom and owed his financial power to the cultivation of rice, a real currency at the time but also a symbol of financial power.
