Tesseron | Cognac, France
Founded in 1905, Tesseron Cognac remains family-owned and is run today by third-generation family member Alfred Tesseron - who also owns the prestigious 5ème Cru Château Pontet-Canet - with his daughter Justine and son Noé. Sourced entirely from the domaines own vineyards in the Grande and Petite Champagne regions and uniquely using three grape varieties - Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard - Cognac Tesseron is the epitome of distinction, excellence and perfection.
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.
