Brewed in the coldest months of the year to optimize acidity, weight and balance, this full-bodied sake from Kanazawa, the capital of the Ishikawa prefecture, was served chilled and warmed, once again displaying the versatility of sake. Complex, with cocoa, toasted nuts and a slight earthy/mushroom funkiness (sorry, but how else?), the crisp acidity becomes more apparent (and perhaps more integrated) when warmed. Served with a foie gras/minced chicken crispy wonton in a clear truffle consommé (yes, it was as good as it sounds).
