Richard Geoffroy
又一清酒傑作!

法國的Dom Pérignon香檳前首席釀酒師Richard Geoffroy,在告別了工作達28年的Moët & Chandon後,宣佈在日本的富山縣成立「白岩酒造」,並開始展開其全新對味覺追求的計劃,就是釀製日本清酒!消息一出,立即引起全酒界的注目!而首款釀造的清酒被命名為 「岩 IWA 5」。
Richard Geoffroy在釀造「岩 IWA 5」的過程中發揮了其最擅長的混酒藝術(Art of Blending),使用了三款米種 (分別為山田錦、雄町和五百万石)及五款酵母釀製而成。入口時會感到優美的酸度,酒體口感非常圓潤,味道清新如柑橘,甜味如蜜糖,尾段帶一點點的辛口,感覺既溫柔且紮實。
值得一提的是那由著名設計師Marc Newson 所設計的酒樽。它的線條非常漂亮,混合清澈玻璃與磨砂玻璃的設計令它帶來的相當的質感。而樽蓋採用了玻璃製作,在開起來的時候會更容易。其標籤則由中島秀樹與書法家木下幸子共同創作,可說是一份融合東方與西方文化技術的結晶品。

根據酒造的說法,IWA5沒有固定的配方,但是每年都要重新考慮醸造過程。他們還指出,清酒每年都會微妙地演變。

In his search for renewed harmony at IWA, Richard Geoffroy, fifth chef de cave for Dom Pérignon Champagne, pursues the dream of a grand Japanese sake. A sake absolutely true to sake—with its salient flow of sensations—yet embracing and expanded in character. A radiant sake. Such a paradoxical proposition cannot come from a single brew. It can only be achieved through blending, by design. Blending adds a paradigm to the established paradigm of rice polishing. The more blended, the more harmonious.
Through precise orchestration, five classes of elements sing in unison to create IWA 5. The rice class, for instance, comprises three varieties: Yamada Nishiki, Omachi, Gohyakumangoku. In the yeast class, five strains are brought together. Also brought into play are the origin of the rice, the yeast propagation method (moto) and the regimes of fermentation. The blend is the controlled interplay of these many instruments to define a world of possibilities and select the few ones worth pursuing and refining into euphony. It’s all there. In its right place. At the right moment.
The making of IWA 5 is not a stable recipe but an experimental process reconsidered every year. IWA 5 will evolve subtly, and from one year to the next new traits will emerge, and new facets appear.
