Tesseron Master Blend 100's Cognac is the name given to a highly prized collection of Tesseron cognacs, created by the company's founder, Abel Tesseron, at the end of the 19th century. These rare cognacs have been carefully treasured by Abel Tesseron and bottled by the third generation, Alfred Tesseron.
Within the ancestral Tesseron reserve there is a unique collection of heavy glass demijohns, which house a living company archive - a testimonial to Abel Tesseron.
Only 143 bottles of this exceptional cognac are available worldwide.
The splendid, heavy glass flagons, carefully sealed to avoid any evaporation, continue to preserve the ancient, matchless cognacs contained within. They are a real and rare treasure, having attained optimal maturity. The faux-de-vies used for this unique creation are only used in exceptional occasions.
About Tesseron Cognac
Tesseron Cognac specializes in high-end Cognac, exclusively producing “XO and beyond” blends from their ancestral home in Chateauneuf-sur-Charente, which lies between Cognac and Angouleme. When founder Abel Tesseron, whose face features on the company’s logo, acquired the property in the late 19th century, he patiently conserved his stocks of eaux-de-vie in the 12th-century crypt located deep underneath the domain, selling his matured masterpieces to various larger Cognac houses. These reserved and rare stocks have become legendary amongst Cognac connoisseurs the world over. It was, however, only in 2003 that the fourth generation of Tesserons made the decision to release a range under their own name, armed with an unrivalled Cognac craftsmanship and fueled by the legacy left by their grandfather, the iconic brand Tesseron Cognac was born.
The Tesserons are also active in wine production, owning the esteemed Chateau Pontet-Canet, a Pauillac classified property producing Grand Cru Classé Bordeaux Wine.
