Lot n°29 X.O Exception
Pack Size: 6 x 70cl
Country of Origin: France
Tesseron Cognac Lot N°29 Exception is the rare jewel of the Tesseron collection of Cognacs. A unique blend of legendary Grande Champagne, the cream of our oldest and rarest stocks, lovingly aged for at least three generations. Balancing power and finesse, Exception has a floral bouquet, allied to chocolate and mocha notes. This is complemented by that elusive, ethereal nose which is so typical of only the very best old cognac. This subtle elixir has an extraordinarily long aftertaste, and its lovely amber highlights reflect its very slow ageing – the quintessence of elegance.
COMPOSITION: Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard grapes.
BLEND: Grande Champagne.
Aged: Three generations and more in Limousin oak casks.
COLOR: Splendid topaz colors.
NOSE: An explosion of complex and delicate notes: rancio, honey, figs, wax, plums and woods, exotic fruits yet remains fresh.
PALATE: Elegant and endless in complexity. Strong notes of Mocha and floral notes. Extremely well balanced with an incredibly smooth finish. A rich Marmelade aftertaste.
