Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
Tesseron Tresor is a Grande Champagne delight harvested at the end of the 1800s. Abel Tesseron was responsible for distilling and beginning the aging process for this cognac all those years ago, and the passing years only continued to enrich this wonderful eaux-de-vie.
Several generations have provided careful watch over the spirit as the limousin wooden barrels imparted their taste, aromas, and flavors - each housed in a 12th century crypt. Today, this little piece of history is available to own and enjoy - in the shape of Tesseron Tresor Cognac.
Presented in a stylish decanter and box, this is certainly one for lovers of fine cognac. An exceptional XO, one to enjoy on special occasions.
The best. Sophisticated nose. Spicy on the palate. Aftertaste reveals more vanilla and pepper. Good value when compared to more expensive cognacs.
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.
