£350.00
TESSERONLOT29

Cognac Tesseron Lot 29 Exception is the rare jewel of the Tesseron collection of Cognacs. A unique blend of legendary Grande Champagne, the cream of their 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 a very slow ageing – the quintessence of elegance.

Lustrous topaz in colour Lot 29 has a 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 is supremely elegant, combining 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.
