|Brand||Tanaka 1789 X Chartier|
|Spirits Style||Daiginjo Blend|
Continuing in the new art of sake blending, this second label once again « crafted for food » by Chartier is a Daiginjo style (BLEND 001 is a Junmai style). It will shake your taste buds with its bold and exotic fruity aromas, an explosive and juicy fruit attack, coupled with a sensual texture that’s balanced by a unique naturally fresh acidity. This represents the signature of TANAKA 1789 X CHARTIER sakes, offering elegance and verticality similar to the world’s best white wines.
Here, Chartier has crafted what is admittedly a "sexier" 2018 vintage Blend 002. He has discovered the ideal harmony between Tanaka's new Chartier-style sakes, which offer a higher natural acidity than is typically seen in the sake world. In this case, he provides an exotic aromatic profile and a fruit bomb style in mouth, reminiscent of the best Pinot Gris from Alsace. The result is an expressive and flavourful sake that explodes into a symphony of flavours from the first sip.
