Sakes and Aubrac Cheeses

Sakes and Aubrac Cheeses

The "Jeune Montagne" cheese cooperative offered us a great challenge in March: to match a series of five Aubrac cheeses with Japanese sake in the best possible way! Although it is now accepted that sake is a wonderful companion for cheese, this time we wanted to take the possibilities further by looking for the perfect match. We have imagined this around a selection of fine references.

Namazake, Proust's madeleine

Namazake, Proust's madeleine

Two super-fresh namazakes that transported us to the heart of the breweries at the time of their tasting. Those of you who had the chance to visit a kura certainly have this fruity and enveloping fragrance engraved forever in the depths of their piriform cortex. This delicate scent can be found with pleasure at home every time a bottle is opened, but nothing is more powerful than a namazake to trigger this reminiscence.

What's a Maekake ?

What's a Maekake ?

The Maekake is this apron, traditionally made of indigo and thick cotton, that you have undoubtedly already seen in Japan (for the lucky ones) or in an izakaya restaurant but also in a food store. This harmless accessory still carries 500 years of history. Its appearance dates back to the Muromachi period (14-16th century), when it was found in rice, soy sauce or sake shops.

Project Hitotoki - The man, the tree and the sake

If there's one thing that fascinates us all as sake lovers, it's the extraordinary ability of breweries to innovate constantly. Renewal is a vital need for a producer, a positive impetus for sake as a whole. Whether through the development of new technical processes, the use of new machine tools or, in contrast, the implementation of inspirations from the past,

Saké & Pasta

Saké & Pasta

From the Arabic Bharkha to the Japanese Karasumi, bottarga is the gold of the sea, a culinary treasure. With the end of the summer, it is the spawning of the big mules that begins, the ideal moment to consume last year's production in a delicious Italian specialty that is super simple to make: spaghetti alla bottargua. The Japanese twist on this dish is signed Shichiken, a tear of sake in the preparation, and a peach Honjozo in the tasting.

Umeshu's comparison

Umeshu's comparison

If some of you think that umeshu is just a nice fruity Japanese plum liqueur, you should know that the nuances are much more interesting than it seems. That's what we want to emphasize in this selection. Whether produced on an alcohol, shochu or sake base, it is a real contest of know-how, a whirlwind of sweetness in which we take you along with five umeshu passed on the bench.

Arita Porcelain and Sake

Arita Porcelain and Sake

Are you familiar with Arita porcelain? Also called "Arita Yaki", it was initially famous under the name of "Imari". A name that comes from the port from which they were shipped to the Old Continent in the holds of Dutch ships, the first Europeans to trade with Japan. But it is in the locality of Arita, Saga prefecture, north of Kyushu, that these jewels were born at the beginning of the 17th century.

The beautiful bottles are there

Let's face it, which one of us has never fallen for a bottle just because of its appearance, just because of its shape, or because its label was really cool? In newsletters and product sheets, we try to transcribe as best as possible the aromatic profile of sake. We also often talk to you about the substance rather than the shape. But now, we are taking the lead and presenting you with a selection of our most beautiful bottles!

Roka or Muroka Sake - Carbon filtration

Roka or Muroka Sake - Carbon filtration

Have you carefully observed the color of the sake you taste? Apart from nigori and koshu sake, it is generally not very pronounced, but did you know that after filtration, the color of sake is more pronounced? If the final product is not very tinted, it is thanks to the ingenuity of certain brewers who developed, at the beginning of the 20th century, a method to get rid of undesirable colors.

A polished Futsuu Shu, Tentaka Umakara

First of all, a little reminder: you know that there are two main categories in the classification of sake, Futsuu Shu sake (or "ordinary" sake), and Tokutei Meisho Shu sake, (or "premium" sake). Futsuu Shu, even if they account for more than 70% of the total production, do not necessarily attract the favor of specialists. They are generally produced by the majors whose owners often bear their name.

"bo:" by Tonoïke Shuzoten, the future of sake ?

"bo:" by Tonoïke Shuzoten, the future of sake ?

It's the history of the original kura, like many sake breweries in Tochigi, which is very interesting.

Pasteurization (or not) of Japanese sake

Pasteurization (or not) of Japanese sake

We propose to you today to take an interest in the broad outlines of the pasteurization stage of sake. Called "hi-ire" in Japanese, which could be translated as "to set on fire", pasteurization is practiced for the vast majority of commercially available sake. It is done just after sedimentation and filtration of the contents of the vats. It stabilizes the sake before it is put on the market.

When design intertwines, Carp and Sake

When design intertwines, Carp and Sake

The design of sake bottles or labels is usually ultra-sophisticated; even the novice is not indifferent to it. But when the contents are as beautiful and good as the container, one touches ecstasy. This is the case with this magnificent realization from the Imayo Tsukasa Brewery in Niigata. A Nishikigoi bottle (inspired by the art of carp breeding for their motifs), and a "Koi" sake. Did you know that the representation of a carp swimming upwards is a symbol of good fortune in Japan?

What is a Ginjo sake?

What is a Ginjo sake?

A Ginjo sake is defined by the following aromatic typicity: a fresh nose with floral and fruity aromas. On the palate, it is delicate and the fruity and floral flavors are distinct, mostly associated with notes of apple and white flowers. The acidity is variable, but less marked than for other categories of sake. To achieve this result, a certain number of technical parameters must be considered.

The origin of Junmai sake

One way to categorize sake is to indicate whether or not it received an addition of alcohol during fermentation. Two groups can be distinguished: the Junmai group, which received no added alcohol, with the categories Junmai Ginjo and Junmai Daïginjo, according to the degree of polish of the rice. The group of non Junmaï, , sake which received distilled alcohol, with Honjozo, Ginjo and Daiginjo (naturally deprived of the Junmaï mention).

The importance of yeast

The importance of yeast

In the course of the tastings we organize throughout the year, it is surprising to notice that one question keeps coming up again and again, the question of what determines the aromatic profile of a sake. How, from an element as simple as rice, it was possible to obtain such flavors... We asked this question directly to Mr. Itoigawa, Toji and thus responsible for the production of Asahara Shuzo in Saitama.

Rice polishing

Rice polishing

Once harvested, in early autumn, the rice is cleared of the brown cuticle surrounding it, and then goes into sake production. But the grain is not used as it is, and an important step will take place, polishing. Called seimai in Japanese, it consists of circulating the rice in large vertical grindstones. The grains will wear against the stone and the outer layers will be nibbled and reduced to a fine powder. The diameter of the grain gradually reduces to leave only a small white pearl at the end of the process.

About sake rice

About sake rice

Japan is a volcanic and mountainous country, with few plains and therefore limited possibilities to develop its agriculture. Only 12% of the land surface is cultivated (compared to 36% in France), and more than half is dedicated to rice cultivation. This appeared during the Jomon period (16,500 - 3000 BC) and it will fundamentally structure Japanese society.
