Tasting Notes
Jenssen tasting notes and review: "A naturally dark, amber colour sets the tone:Masculine notes of cigar-box, leather and walnut lead the way, well balanced against scents of marzipan, anis, orange and dried apricot. Lime-blossom, violet and dried rose create a pleasant overtone.On the palate, characteristics go from ripe fruits like peach and apricot with points of orange to figs and prunes. Beneath a veil of melted oak, the tongue is teased by nutmeg, vanilla and almonds. A long, complex aftertaste lingers on, and swirls of ripe grapes bring forth memories from the amber liquid’s remote youth."

The house of Cognac Jenssen is located in the heart of premier cru Grande Champagne – in the highly desired ‘golden triangle.’ The estate is called Le Maine Pertubaud and consists of a sprawl of beautifully restored old buildings, ancient cellars, mansions and vines. Jenssen Cognac grows grapes on 25 hectares of vineyards and produces a small range of cognacs that range from VSOP to the prestigious 98 year old “Arcana.”
