This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

Dewazakura Sansei

Dewazakura Daiginjo Daikoshu Sansei (出羽桜 大吟醸大古酒 三勢) - drank over dinner at Irori.  With a seimaibuai (精米歩合) of just 35%, this has been aged at a temperature of -5 degrees Celsius for over 13 years, making this a koshu (古酒).  Amazingly, this didn't have the same nose as the other koshus I've had before...  Didn't smell like a Shaoxing (紹興) at all!  Very smooth on the palate, but medium-dry and very long finish.  Nose was a little muted but there were some floral and banana notes.  A very delicate sake.

Full post on dinner is here.
