Yoshinogawa Junmai Daiginjo Hizoshu
Product also available in store : 28 rue du Dragon - 75006 PARIS
The first Ginjo to be marketed in Nigata Prefecture in November 1971, this exceptional Hizôshu sake, literally "the sake treasure", owes its name to the water used to make it: "the water from the fountain of the gods" which flows deep under the Yoshinogawa house. A Junmai Daiginjo Genshu aged slowly at -5°C. A sake with a mineral character. Smells of flint, and a beautiful evocation of Japan through smells of Koji, or daikon. A beautiful texture on the palate, where the roundness is perfectly balanced with a certain roundness.
The long and noble finish is convincing of its remarkable quality. A unique sake to discover on precious occasions.
This Daiginjo junmai sake is a perfect example of the Yoshonogawa house style, which connoisseurs recognize among the great sake of Niigata.
Characteristics: A sake all in minerality. Smells of flint, and a beautiful evocation of Japan through smells of Koji, or daikon. A beautiful texture on the palate, where the roundness is perfectly balanced with a certain roundness.

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.
