Country: Japan Style: Saké Alcohol: 16.9% Bottle size: 70cl
Isake was created by the passion of a French Sommelier and a Japanese Saké expert to bring to a wider audience their discoveries of the finest Japanese Sakés .Their aim is to give new inspiration to the world of gastronomy by prompting the reinvention of Premium Japanese Saké at the same level as the finest wines. This saké is made from Yamadanishiki rice milled so that only 19% of the original size of the grains remains; this is the highest degree of milling of any sake in the world. It is the pinnacle of refined elegance, subtlety and delicate taste and aromas. Tasting Note: On the nose, this sake shows a delicacy of mineral aroma that might remind people of Grand Cru Chablis. On the palate, it is full-bodied, with haunting quince and gooseberry flavours, and a hugely long, clean finish.
