Professional Wine Reviews for Nanbu Bijin Ancient Pillars Junmai Daiginjo Sake NV

Rated 94 by Stephen Tanzer
Very pale color. Complex, subtly saline aromas of lemon, lime zest, white rose and mint; also in a high-pitched, rather northern" style. Very suave on entry, then rich and fine-grained, with terrific aromatic lift in the middle palate. Broader than the Divine Droplets: this really spreads out and melts into the tongue. Finishes very long, with noteworthy finesse. The alcohol here is actually a rather high 17.9%. This brewery is built around the well that supplies its water.

Additional Information on Nanbu Bijin Ancient Pillars Junmai Daiginjo Sake NV

Winery: Nanbu Bijin

Country: Japan

The rice wines and plum wines of Japan are amongst the most fascinating, aromatic and seductive national drinks in the world, and it is a testament to the traditional practices and expertise of the producers of these beverages that their popularity is continuing to rise across the globe. Both plum wines and sake are produced in many parts of Japan, and there are even several AOC style appellations dedicated to producing plum wines and sake of the highest quality, overseen by regulations similar to those found in esteemed wine regions of France and elsewhere. Both drinks are inextricably linked with the cuisine of Japan, but both are also highly enjoyable when drank without food, giving the drinker a real taste of the beauty of the far east.
