Born Gold Specially Limited Junmai Daiginjo

En Japanese Brasserie is one of the most elegant dinner spots in New York. Tip: Choose the set menu on the left of the three columns (the one with the three types of mushrooms, then homemade soft tofu, then the sashimi, then the black cod, then the soba noodles, then the chicken on slate, then the sorbet). Avoid the vegan set menu (middle column) and the one on the right, which is rather exotic and involves turning an egg timer when a candle goes out all in the aim to cook some rice perfectly.

I've always liked saké. Good saké at least. And this, I think and say knowing very little about the subject, is good saké. Smooth, nicely balanced, somewhat rich showing good depth and some melon-like notes. It worked beautifully with the food (left column menu).

Like this a lot. The sweetness is a touch more than I normally like, but it works without overwhelming. Nice and rounded — 7 days ago
