Cognac Tesseron Lot 29 Exception
For years, this small, family-owned Cognac house has sold its prized eaux-de-vie to many of the larger companies for their most prestigious blends. But now certain "lots," as founder Abel Tesseron labeled them in 1905, are being offered under the Tesseron name. Lot 29 in particular is a unique blend of Grande Champagne Cognacs that have aged for a minimum of "three generations," as the family likes to put it. Layers of cedar, fig, and mocha, plus that elusive hint of musty rancio found in the oldest and rarest Cognacs, make this a late-night snifter to savor.
