About the brewery : The Sogen brewery is located at the northern tip of the Noto Peninsula, in the north of Ishikawa Prefecture on Japan's west coast. Founded in 1768, it is the oldest brewery in the region. Sogen Shuzo is said to be the home of the Noto Toji guild, one of the country's four major production streams, renowned for producing sake with a powerful style and exuberant flavours. Production is handled by Yukio Sakaguchi, a leading figure in the world of toji, recognised throughout the country as a true 'sake master'. His personality, expertise and the many accolades he has earned over the years make him a source of pride for the region. He continues to bring Noto Ryu to life with great energy, not only for young Tojis, but also by adding his own variations of style on a daily basis.

Detailed tasting notes : An ultra-clean junmai sake, rich and well-structured, in pure Noto Toji style. A remarkably expressive nose, marked by fruity aromas of banana and pear, with hints of cereal and lactic notes. On the palate, the fruity sensations sensed on the nose are clearly present, accompanied by good acidity and rich umami. The structure is limpid and lively. The wine then develops notes of ripe fruit, fig and dried apricot. The finish is long, punctuated by a lovely bitterness that adds plenty of freshness.

Serving suggestions : Serve as an aperitif or throughout the meal. It goes well with strong-flavoured dishes, grills and sauces. Best served chilled or heated.
