A blend of our most sublime stocks of Grande Champagne, Cognac. It has a somptuous topaz colour with a bouquet of plums, figs, and chocolate that only decades of ageing can procure. The aftertaste is very fresh, which adds enormously to the pleasure of Cognac connoisseurs. A Cognac that borders on perfection.

Wine EnthusiastThe nosing passes find an oaky/nut paste aroma with fruity notes of berries, dried fruit, plums, pears and soft cheese. The palate entry is composed, succulent and honeyed; by midpalate the flavors deepen to include caramel, rancio and orange rind. Finishes beautifully with depth, finesse and maturity.

Wine AdvocateWe finished with the new release of Tesseron's Cognac. The Tesseron family (currently the proprietors of St.-Estèphe's Lafon-Rochet and Pauillac's Pontet-Canet) made its fortune in the Cognac business, and it is one of the few families to possess ancient stocks of great vintages that have not been diluted with water or manipulated in any manner. They released small quantities of Lot 29 (1929), which remains the most ethereal Cognac I have ever tasted. I'm no expert, but their newest release, the 1953, seems close in quality to the 1929. Slightly darker than the 1929, the 1953 is pure silk, which at this alcohol level is very dangerous indeed. The complex aromatics can fill a room.
