The Tesseron Composition Fine Champagne Cognac is a very different option from a house that, up until now, has only ever showcased XO and above quality Cognac. However this, their first VSOP, really does prove how truly talented they are at bringing a slightly younger model to market. And don't worry, there's plenty of older eaux-de-vie within the blend to ensure the highest of quality, not to mention maturity on the palate.
Be in no doubt, this is a very good sipping Cognac. Certainly one that will stand up to the most rigorous of connosieur taste tests. Being Fine Champagne means it's a blend of both Grande Champagne and Petite Champage, with at least 50% of the eaux-de-vie coming from the premier cru. It provides a round, complex, yet totally balanced drinking experience that you can enjoy neat, on the rocks, or mixed in a cocktail if you so choose.
About Tesseron Cognac
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.
