UMU(2).jpgのサムネール画像UMU(1).jpgのサムネール画像Wednesday the 13th January saw the official global press launch of KOJ held at the prestigious one-star Michelin restaurant in Mayfair. UMU is a unique Kyoto style restaurant in London, using only the freshest ingredients sourced from Japan to creat a 'Kaiseki' Japanese menu. Each of the 7 courses was accompanied by 2-3 Koshu wines.
This event was attended by the "cream" of UK journalists and wine personalities, such as Jancis Robinson, Nick Lander, Steven Spurrier, Anthony Rose, Charles Metcalfe and Michael Broadbent to name but a few!
The praise for the style and quality of the wines was unanimous and since this event many journalists have written in praise of the wines. True to form with a group of journalists as diverse as this, there was much discussion as to which wines suited the exquisites Kaiseki food best. Global wine elder statesman Michael Broadbent's short speech in praise of the food and wines was a sourse of inspiration to the KOJ team and all the winemakers and a motivation to continue this initiative.
