Takenotsuyu Junmai JH06 "Bamboo Tears"

Four Hot Words: Rich, Velvety, Round, & Smooth


The nose on this superb Junmai is filled with cherry, plums, dried fruit and saw dust aromas. Talk about a soft sake. This brilliant brew is both clean and light and incredibly silky with layers of plump flavors. Yet flavorful is an understatement as hints of richness conceal a mild sweetness that ends in a semi-dry finish. An elegant sake that drinks way too easy, and represents another great example of a Yamagata-style sake that screams “Drink me!” WORD: Easy WINE: Pinot Noir/Chewy whites BEER: Light ales FOODS: Salty and savory fare, grilled everything, and sushi surprises. 

Prefecture: Yamagata
SMV: +2
Acidity: 1.4
