Tesseron Cognac COGNAC TRESOR
The signature collection
The Signature Collection Cognacs are all very small lots, personally selected by Alfred Tesseron, who also designed the extraordinary decanters that house them. The lots are selected for their quality and strong individuality, making each cognac a unique and rare experience.
Tesseron Cognac is a new luxury cognac brand owned by the Tesseron family, which for more than a century has provided its old, rare stocks to the larger cognac houses. The family holds one of the largest collections of aged cognac reserves in the world and launched their own brand in 2003, releasing cognacs only XO (which stands for extra old) and above in age. Made only in miniscule quantities, their cognacs are incredibly rare and highly desirable.
The Tesseron Cognac house is located in Châteauneuf-surCharente and was founded by Abel Tesseron in 1905. Since then, the family business has since been handed down through four generations, and is now run by Alfred Tesseron, also owner of the highly regarded Château Pontet-Canet in Bordeaux.
XO TRÉSOR is a blend of around one hundred eaux-de-vie selected for their characteristic of finesse while possessing great power, richness and length. These eaux-de-vie are all Grande Champagne 1st growth, and all three major grape varieties (Ugni Blanc, Colombard, and Folle Blanche) are represented. Aging is for more than two generations (50+ years) in precious Tiercons barrels, famed for their age and rarity.
