TESSERON XO LOT Nr 29 – 70cl

450.00

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 aging – the quintessence of elegance.

COMPOSITION : Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard Grapes
BLEND : Grande Champagne
AGED: More than three generations in Limousin oak casks

Description

TASTING NOTES
THE COLOR: Lustrous topaz
THE NOSE: Here again we have that heady, decadent aged nose, followed by layers of honey, figs, plums, and exotic fruit laced with oak. Unctuous and silky this retains a wonderful
freshness and vitality throughout. THE PALATE: Supremely elegant, this combines macerated dried fruit with hints of mocha and cocoa, refreshed by floral aromatics. This is extremely well balanced and wonderfully complex with marmalade notes emerging on a persistent, stylish finish
PRESS CUTTINGS
ROBERT PARKER.com – Hedonist’s gazette: Anything this smooth, silky, potent, and aromatic, is truly great stuff. It is about as ethereal Cognac as anyone could ever hope to drink. 100 points
