Tasting review

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"

Exceptional cognac

This one is extraordinary cognac.
Appearance - light amber color. Looks quite light for it's age but very noble.
Smell - fruity and floral (smell is not my strongest sense unfortunately).
Pallate - brilliant. My personal feeling - warm wave that goes from mouth till the ends of fingers and toes. Bright and delicate at the same time.
Finish - long, warm and silky. Tones of apricot, vanilla, honey and a tiny ginger. Absolutely self-sufficient cognac, no need to pairing with coffee, chocolate or cigar (on my understanding). Has an aftertaste you don't want to break.
Excellent choice for remarkable occasion.


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.
