Our Iwanoi Junmai sake is made by the Iwase Shuzo house (Boso, Chiba Prefecture), a follower of traditional “Yamahai” production method (starter is made in a more laborious way, without adding lactic acid) . This longer fermentation method, now quite rare, gives the sake more pronounced, more complex aromatic notes.

Iwase has been producing this type of refined sake, known as “koshu”, since 1965.

To benefit from the koshu categorization, sake must be matured for at least 3 years causing an evolution of the robe from pale to golden yellow or amber color and taste notes reminiscent of Madeira wine, sherry, with touches of caramel, vanilla…
The Maillard reactions between sugars and amino acids naturally present in sake explain this evolution throughout maturing.
Iwanoi Junmai koshu, offered here, has been made and stored in the cellar since 1983.
It is very rare to find sakes so old and offering perfect aging.
It is characterized by a sweet and flowery fragrance reminiscent of dried fruits or nuts, with spicy notes, a rich and complex palate, a nice acidity reminiscent of fully ripened white wines.


Our perfect pairings : roasted duck breast, venison, deer fillet, acorn-fed iberico ham, creamy bottarga, roasted pineapple, flambéed banana, chocolate tart, apple baked in butter, dried or baked figs, baked or dried raw apricots , blue cheeses.
