Chōkyū Kijōshu 1999
Kijōshu means ‘Noble-Brew Sake’ (replacing some of the water used during the fermentation period with finished sake). The Chōkyū has a rich toffee colour, and highly aromatic nose of bitter chocolate, caramel and dried porcini mushroom. The palate is reminiscent of sherry. with its deep, rich flavours and is a great match for rich meat dishes, cheese or with rich desserts. Delicious burnt toffee flavour with a savoury walnut and sesame finish. A fascinating combination of sweet and savoury elements in this richly flavoured Sake.
