The perfect sweet spot between Dassai's '45' and '23', Dassai '39' Junmai Daiginjo comes from the world-famous Asahi Shuzo brewery in Japan's Yamaguchi Prefecture. With rice polished to 39%, this luscious sake is a velvety plush basket of soft tree fruits balanced with smooth acidity.
The '39' reveals an aromatic profile of green apple, magnolia blossom, and Meyer lemon integrating beautifully with the nectar-like sweetness of mango, ripe apricot, and honeydew melon. Perfect accompaniments to '39' include Ikura (Salmon Roe), Soft French Cheese, and Chicken Parmesan.
