Tesseron Cognac

Sourced entirely from domaine vineyards in the Grande and Petite Champagne regions and uniquely using three grape varieties – Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche & Colombard – Tesseron is the epitome of distinction, excellence and perfection. Founded in 1905, Tesseron Cognac remains family-owned and is run today by third-generation family member Alfred Tesseron – also owner of the prestigious 5ème Cru Château Pontet-Canet – with his daughter Justine and son Noé. With 100 Robert Parker points (‘as ethereal cognac as anyone could ever hope to drink’) and crowned Paul Pacult’s Best Spirit in the World, the Tesseron name is synonymous with very rare, aged cognacs. Their range is almost exclusively XO, with their oldest reserves dating back to the pre-phylloxera era of the nineteenth century. The Classic, Signature and Prestige Collections are now offered in decanters reflecting Tesseron’s standing within the cognac elite.

Production:

The French impressionist painter Claude Monet once said: “No one is an artist unless he carries his picture in his head before painting it, and is sure of his method and composition.”

This unique Cognac blend was pictured and composed by Alfred Tesseron, 3rd generation of Tesseron, and Romain Martial, the newly appointed 2nd generation Tesseron Cognac Master Blender.

It all started when Alfred Tesseron challenged Romain to craft a Cognac by solely using eaux de vie distilled and aged since the beginning of his journey at Tesseron Cognac. Trained by his father for more than a decade, this blend is an expression of his performance applied to a specific assemblage and a tribute to his future work with the Tesseron family.

Made solely with the two best “cru” of Cognac, Grande and Petite Champagne (also known as “Fine Champagne”), “Composition” reveals a truly magnificent terroir driven taste profile. Fresh, elegant, suave and aromatic, “Composition” is an artistic visionary work with a natural balance of strength, smoothness and all the attributes you can expect from a Cognac carefully crafted by the Tesseron family house.
