SAKES

BY FRANÇOIS CHARTIER

TANAKA 1789 X CHARTIER
BLEND 001
SAKE JUNMAI NAMA-ZUME
VINTAGE 2018

Chartier has created a unique 2018 vintage, providing the best possible harmony between all the new Chartier style sakes from Tanaka 1789 x Chartier, at Tanaka Shuzo, in Miyagi (Japan). The unique fresh and natural acidity of this new blend awakens the taste buds, evoking the elegance, straightforwardness and freshness of the world’s finest white wines. The result is an aromatic sake that offers an explosion of complex and rich flavours from the first sip.

Dominant aromas: aniseed and fresh basil.
On the palate: peach milk, pineapple, coconut and almond.

Complementary foods

This new “Blend 001” offers one of the most interesting range of food matches possible, thanks to its unique duality of aromatic profiles. These combine the freshness of Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley, coupled with the precise structure of Burgundy Chardonnay, with its subtle notes of butter, almond and white stone fruit.

Pairings in freshness mode

  • Ceviche
  • Sashimi/sushi
  • Pasta and salads with lemon and fresh herbs (basil, coriander, tarragon, shiso, etc.)

Creamy and rich pairings

  • Salmon with beurre blanc
  • Chicken with mushrooms
  • Soft cheeses
