Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Tesseron Lot No 29 Exception is truly worthy of its name. A unique blend of Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie, this cognac has been lovingly aged for at least three generations. It's floral bouquet delights, bringing to mind mocha and notes of chocolate. And, naturally, you get to enjoy exceptional rank - a phenomena only associated with truly old cognac.
The decanter is simple, yet stunning, and comes to you secure in a presentation box. If you're looking for a top quality, rare jewel of a cognac, then your search has come to fruition. Definitely one for the connoisseur.
Look, I have drunk more Cognac / Brandy than I care to mention!!! In this instance, in regard to the Lot: 29 , may I say - it is sublime...Alas!...there are some critiques - namely, Age! There is definitely an age where a spirit regresses to a wine like state and this is one of them. Probably 50 to 60 years is the maximum in which the fluid can maintain its integrity.
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.
