Produced by the Asahi Shuzo brewery, Dassai 39 is a premium sake of the junmai daiginjo type, which means that the rice used has been polished to more than 50% and no alcohol has been added. As the name suggests, this premium sake has a residual rice grain content of 39% so that only the noblest part of the rice remains ; the heart.
The finesse of its aromas is a perfect accompaniment to shellfish, fish in sauce and grilled or steamed vegetables.
Sake or nihonshu is a Japanese alcoholic beverage with a 14% to 17% volume content, made from a mixture of water, yeast and steamed rice, a small part of which has been previously sown with a microscopic fungus, the koji, to allow better fermentation.

Brewery Asahi Shuzo - Dassai
Founded in 1948 in the Yamaguchi region, Asahi Shuzo is now famous around the world for its Dassai Sake line.
Nestled in a lush mountainous region not far from the town of Iwakuni, Asahi Shuzo was producing ordinary sake and was in decline when Hiroshi Sakurai took over the small family business in 1984 and decided to shift production to high-end sake.

Le saké "médian" présent dans le coffret de dégustation. Pas de retour sur la dégustation, s'agissant d'un cadeau 😉

Une valeur sûre qui ne déçoit jamais avec un côté plus minéral qui fonctionne très bien avec les sushis (notamment).

Caractère assez minéral. Assez de caractère en bouche (+ que le 29). Bonne longueur. À privilégier sur coquillages

Goûté chez Rebuchon…frappé…grande subtilité
