Hattan rice dates back to the 1800s when the Hattanso rice variety was mixed by private growers. Following in the early 1900s, the Hiroshima prefecture started creating varieties of Hattan rice that would be more resistant to disease, produce high yields, and also craft a more excellent shinpaku. Different varieties of the Hattan rice were bred through the decades, and the results included stronger varieties that were more resistant to disease. The breeding also introduced varieties more ideal for sake brewing because of their ability to absorb water. Hiroshima Hattan features a signature delicate taste that is deliciously fragrant. The Kamoizumi Shuzo brewery in the Hiroshima prefecture crafts quality sakes from the Hiroshima Hattan variety.

Philippe Milan Pommard AOC is 100% Pinot Noir
This wine has been aged in Oak (25% new Oak)
This is a little more structured and the style goes more toward the "vin de garde", or wines meant to age. This wine needs some food, or sometime in the decanter right now. It is well structured and reminds me of a Volnay. As a matter of fact, the parcel is located right next to Volnay. The finish is long and still quite juicy with chewy tannins lingering.
