INOUE GOMEI 'BIDEN' 1999
Style: Junmai Yamahai Koshu
Serve: Room Temperature
Made from locally grown ‘Itoshima’ Yamada-Nishiki rice, fermented in the Yamahai method [traditional yeast starter], and aged at room temperature for 14 years.
Biden is a fairly light for Koshu [aged Sake], but has a medium-bodied, soft texture with caramel tones typical of aged sake but with fantastic savoury elements. A great accompaniment for a wide range of dishes like soba noodles, dishes seasoned with soy or miso, cured or grilled meats, Jerusalem artichoke, or hard cheeses.
