Tesseron tasting notes: "A heady, decadent, aged nose, followed by layers of honey, figs, plums, & exotic fruit laced with oak. Unctuous and silky, retaining wonderful freshness & vitality throughout. Supremely elegant, combining macerated dried fruit with hints of mocha & cocoa, refreshed by floral aromaa. Well balanced & complex with marmalade notes emerging on a persistent, stylish finish"
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.
