Tesseron Extrême, Grande Champagne, Cognac 1er Cru is a truly rare creation that will delight the few that get to taste it. Created from ancient treastures long hidden within Tesseron's Paradis Cellar, this is the first time this exceptional blend has been offered for sale. It is so rare that even specialists speak of it only as a memory of flavours long sought and never found...
Velvety and supple on the palate, its extraordinary mellowness is matched only by its infinitely complex depth. This unique creation is presented in a small, 1.75 litre, ‘’dame-jeanne’’ (demijohn). This is remeniscent of the famous 25 litre ‘’dames-jeannes’’ that contain the finest eaux-de-vies used to create this masterpiece of cognac. Presented to you nestling in a laquered box, the Tesseron Extreme is not only a feast for the taste buds, but on the eyes as well. A true work of art.

Tesseron review: "Its rancio nose, the result of long years of ageing in oak casks, is smooth and harmonious. It opens up in waves of countless secondary aromas, whose tones get stronger and stronger, and then ends with a nice, soft finish. Its exceptionally long-lingering taste is an irrefutable pledge of quality."
Cognac Tesseron specializes, as this slogan suggests, in high-end cognacs. As their marketing slogan suggests, they only produce “XO and Beyond”, so cognacs from the XO age onwards. From their ancestral home Domaine Tesseron in Châteauneuf-sur-Charente, which lies between Cognac and Angoulême, the Tesseron family traditionally used to sell its eaux-de-vie to the large cognac houses. But in 2003 they decided to release a range under their own family name. The Tesserons are also active in wine production, owning Château Pontet-Canet – a Pauillac classified property producing Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux wine.
