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.

There are some secrets that only a privileged few of those in the know are lucky enough to share…

After a double distillation in small coal-heated copper pot stills, the eaux-de-vie proved of exceptional quality and a character unrivaled anywhere which were slowly aged for over three generations in the prized Limousin oak cask barrels, known as Tierçons.

Then, they were transferred from the Tierçons into the Bonbonnes in order to perfect the ageing process. This rarest of nectars then enters the Paradis, the Maison Tesseron’s twelfth century cellar, once the crypt of a monk’s priory. Here it remains, oblivious to time and concealed from the outside world, until the “marriage” ceremony, the delicate process of blending.

From this unique blending comes Tesseron Extreme, carefully chosen from our oldest and finest reserves at the heart of Abel Tesseron’s private collection.

Tasting Notes:

Velvety and supple on the palate, its exceptional mellowness is matched only by its infinitely complex depth. Its rancio nose, the result of long years of ageing in oak casks, is smooth and harmonious. It releases waves of countless secondary aromas, whose tones become more intense, ending with a finish of incomparable softness.
