This is four servings.

Kinmedai was from our local Sagami Bay.

Excellent freshness!




1st Villa d’Est Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2020

It is a gentle sauvignon unique to Japan, the land of rain.

I love this fluffy and pleasant fruits flavor and pure mouthfeel.

The core has a firm minerality.

This is so brilliant!

It is an elegant wine that cannot be served unless it is a Japan wine.



2nd Ajimu Wine Chardonnay 2022

A wonderful white wine unique to Japan was following.

It is made from 100% Chardonnay from Ajim, Oita Prefecture.

I felt a plump fruits flavor, elegant acidity and pure mouthfeel.

The complex aroma that comes from barrel storage is also exquisite.

Oh! really, really, delicious!



3rd Chateau Potensac 2013

After a series of wonderful Japan white wines, for some reason I wanted to drink asexually aged Bordeaux.

Although it is off-vintage, it has aged for a splendid 10 years.

It is a classic style dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon.

I was sure that it had a sense of stability unique to a high-quality Médoc chateau.

Recently, I’ve been delighted to encounter this kind of Médoc.

This is included in the recommended wine set of mine in The Cellar Toranomon’s online shop.
