Kouro Junmai Ginjo JG43 "Famous # 9"

Four Hot Words: Historical, Balanced, Chewy, Huge-character
This extremely "educational" sake has a vast nose filled with strawberry, lychee, honeydew, vanilla and apple elements. How can something drink so clean and yet have so much body! This is the mystery of a classic brew that has an enormous mouth feel, which coats the mouth with gentle and nuanced flavors. A rice-driven Ginjo with hints of unripe fruits, a layer of vanilla, and a whisp of the infamous umami characteristic. So soft, so chewy, so rich and yet so well balanced. For the well versed behold "shibumi" (estrigency) in a delicate delivery and "kire" (quick finish), which is amazing for so much body. Larger glasses and closer to room temperature bring out more "moods." WORD: Big Story WINE: Pinot Noir/White Burgundy BEER: Big Belgians FOODS: Anything off the grill, out of the ocean, from the soil, or felled from the heavens.
