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
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.
