Grand Prix is a sparkling sake crafted for Japanese cuisine that goes well beyond. It is a sparkling sake that can please Champagne drinkers and sake drinkers alike. Second fermentation in bottle gives Masumi Sparkling a fine bubble structure not found in gas-injected sake. It is aged for nearly two years for a well-balanced and smooth character. It has a gracious umami presence followed by savory depth in the midpalate and a lingering honey finish. Sever chilled. It is outstanding with washed-rind cheeses and risotto, especially lobster and truffle. The Masumi Grand Prix also pairs well with miso black cod and sea bass.
