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.

For almost two thousand years, Japan has been producing high quality alcoholic drinks made from the ingredients available to them on their rich and fertile soils and mountainsides. The most popular and highly esteemed 'wines' of Japan are undoubtedly sake, a type of fermented rice wine, and the delicious, sweet and aromatic plum wines which are widely loved around the world. Both drinks are inextricably linked with Japanese cuisine and culture, and both are growing in popularity in the western world along with many other aspects of this amazing and unique country. Because of this boom in popularity over recent years, the sake and plum wine industry of Japan has remained strong, and it continues to be an industry steeped in tradition and many fascinating practices undertaken to keep quality at a high level.
