Asahi Shuzo - Dassai Urakasumi Brewery

Go ahead, just this once: let's judge a sake by its bottle. What does this gorgeous teardrop bottle says about Heavensake? It says this sake may not be traditional, and that’s the point; Heavensake aims to position their sakes as a fresh, chic luxury instead of a foreign curiosity.

Heavensake, like its products, is a marriage between French artistry and Japanese craftsmanship. Régis Camus, cellar master of Piper-Heidsieck since 1994 who now heads their Rare Champagne line, eight-time winner of the Sparkling Winemaker of the Year award–making him arguably the Don of the Champagne world–works hand in hand with several eminent Japanese sake breweries and their Tojis. The sake brewery Tojis provide their proprietary sakes and Camus uses his blending style honed throughout his years as a Champagne maker to create the first Franco-Japanese sakes.

Bottle 1 - HeavenSake Junmai Ginjo

Heavensake's Junmai Ginjo is a savory sake with a bright attack and a crisp finish. As Camus says, a ginjo is like the first day of spring with its warm ray of sunshine, and this sake embodies this sentiment. The Junmai Ginjo, brewed by Urakasumi, is a blend of three rice varieties, not unlike how champagne blends Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Meunier to achieve its signature style.

Bottle 2 - HeavenSake Junmai Daiginjo

Heavensake's Junmai Daiginjo is an impeccably balanced, lush experience with its panorama of fruit flavors that intensifies to the finish. This Junmai Daiginjo, brewed by Dassai, is a blend of their 23, 39, and two other proprietary sakes. Camus blends and tastes with Dassai's Toji until he gets the flavor he is looking for, rather like the production of his Champagnes.

ABOUT THIS BOTTLE

HEAVENSAKE JUNMAI GINJO

A rich Ginjo with a lemon peel, cocoa, and crème brûlée nose. It leans on the acidic side and is crisp, light, and refreshing. Flavors of honeycomb, nougat, and white raisin with a velvety and creamy feel, this supremely balanced sake is the warm embrace of the spring sunshine.

HEAVENSAKE JUNMAI DAIGINJO

Delicate, subtle floral aromas of lilac, lily pollen, and jasmine, with apple, grape and lush tropical fruits invites you in, followed by a vibrant palate of early summer pears, wild red berries and muscat grapes and an intense, creamy mouth feel. Long finish with a pleasant, slight saline edge.
