DOYJOU NABE (どぜう鍋) | 駒形どぜう

Finally got the chance to try this historic restaurant 駒形どぜう in Asakusa. Fell in love with the setting and the ambience indeed. Basically one should really plan a long lunch here, sipping quality sake (a special house edition of ふり袖 produced by a equally historic sake maker Kitagawa Honke-北川本家 from Kyoto) and enjoying the amazing dozeu (どぜう) (loach: small eel like fresh water fish) hotpot on charcoal and taking it easy. 67 mots de plus

Yamamoto (Wain)

純米吟醸「山本 和韻(わいん)」
ワイン酵母も使用したユニークな日本酒。
確かにワインのような甘酸っぱさがあり、独特の味だが飲みやすい。
山本特有の酸も、ほのかに効いている。
ガツンとくる日本酒という感じではなく、爽やかで夏っぽい。
あっさりとした洋食にも合いそうな印象。
そして「和韻」という当て字がまた素敵・・・。

造り:純米吟醸生酒/原料米:秋田酒こまち/使用酵母:ワイン酵母、秋田酵母UT-2/精米歩合:55%/日本酒度:-3.0/酸度:アルコール:14.0%

一口メモ:ワイン酵母も使用/甘酸っぱさがある/独特の味/爽やかで夏っぽい/洋食にも合いそう/ユニークな日本酒
