Gozenshu Den is pale yellow in color, with a quite cloudy appearance. The attack is surprising, generous, very round, a great aromatic fineness, very fruity, green anise, grated green apple, white peach and lily of the valley notes, with no weakness, with a superb balance and purity.
Nose is very much a white wine straight out of the vat, on lie.
We take delight in the acid apple side, the viscosity (round drops), the color between white alcohol and young Sancerre.
Nose is sometimes Sauvignon, between flower and fruit. Concentrated and harmonious.
At the beginning, middle and end there is never any weakness in the taste, length, an aromatic persistency, a great balance and a superb richness.
No astringency, the sweetness and sourness more pleasant than the acidity.
The fifth taste (or umami) is very rich.
Mouth is fleshy, strong, full. We like the warm side, the balanced acidity and the light, pleasant bitterness.
You can sense a perfect mix with bitterness, fishes, citrus fruits, root vegetables, scallops, langoustines.
The time in the mouth is disconcerting. A lot of elegance, fineness, very mineral.
This Gozenshu is very feminine. 

Our perfect combination : you will appreciate it with oysters.
Or in a more gourmet way as follows: take some very thin slices of San Daniele or Bellota quality Pata Negra ham.
Rinse your tongue and palate with Gozenshu Den, then dip a slice of ham generously in the Gozenshu. Taste immediately. Ham umami explodes, salt arrives pleasantly, flavors sparkle and grow. Ham becomes milder and salt covers the tongue and the palate with the most delicious sensations!
Pairing will also be remarkable with fat tuna or salmon sashimi, yakiniku grilled wagyu mea, sukiyaki fondue.

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.
