This namazake (unpasteurized sake) has been aged in refrigeration for many years, and accordingly its name translates as ‘very very long’. It is very unusual in its taste composition: combining high amino-acid content and strong acidity, it has a big body, but a soft rice aroma. On the one hand powerful taste, but on the other hand subdued tones of maturation, due to aging below zero. The general impression is of a perfectly balanced sake tilting towards the sweet side. The 2007 vintage is the first of the Chōchōkyū series using only local Yamadanishiki rice, the 2010 is a combination of Yamadanishiki and Omachi rice. Drink cold, preferably in a wine glass to enhance the slightly fruity rice aroma. Also very agreeable when warmed up slightly.
