Platinum medal in the soft sparkling category, 1st place in the Sake Sparkling Soft category of the French Kura Master Japanese Sake Competition*.
This sparkling sake is so light that it resembles a meringue in the mouth, with a fragrance reminiscent of ripe fruit and a natural sweetness derived from koji. With its alcohol level of barely 7°, this sake can be enjoyed as an aperitif or a drink at the end of a meal.
Its slender design and pure blue makes it elegant on a table.
Tasting tips: Suitable for aperitifs. To be enjoyed in a wine or fruit glass. Consumption temperatures: 8～11 degrees.
*Kura Master is a Japanese sake competition created in 2017 for the French by the French, chaired by Xavier Thuizat, head sommelier at the Hôtel de Crillon.

Built in 1548 in Nagaoka along the old Mikuni road Kaidō, Yoshinogawa is the oldest sake brewery in Niigata Prefecture. Located south of the city of Niigata, Nagaoka is renowned for its fertile soils, pure water and exceptionally fresh local produce, the result of a particularly harsh winter climate, with world record snowfall. Since it can only take advantage of such advantages, Yoshinogawa uses only Niigata rice. For more than 470 years, Yoshinogawa has been perpetuating the know-how of sake making while exploiting the latest technologies. This spirit of syncretism between tradition and new technologies is certainly one of the reasons for Yoshinogawa's secular success.
