Tesseron Extreme

Châteauneuf-sur-Charente, France

Description

There are some secrets that only a privileged few of those in the know are lucky enough to share... The intense emotion you will feel on tasting this exceptional cognac originates from the beautiful slopes of the Grande Champagne vineyards, home to our Ugni Blanc, Folles Blanche and Colombard grapes. After a double distillation in small coal-heated copper pot stills, the eaux-de-vie proved of exceptional quality and a character unrivalled anywhere which were slowly aged for over three generations in the prized Limousin oak cask barrels, known as « Tierçons ». Then, they were transferred from the Tierçons into the « Bonbonnes » in order to perfect the ageing process.

This rarest of nectars then enters the « Paradis », the Maison Tesseron's twelth century cellar, once the crypt of a monks' priory. Here it remains, oblivious to time and concealed from the outside world, until the 'marriage' ceremony, the delicate process of blending. From this unique blending comes Tesseron Extrême, carefully chosen from our oldest and finest reserves at the heart of Abel Tesseron's private collection. For the Tesseron's, this timeless cognac is a way of capturing our history in a bottle. Velvety and supple on the palate, its exceptional mellowness is matched only by its infinitely complex depth. Its rancio nose, the result of long years of ageing in oak casks, is smooth and harmonious. It releases waves of countless secondary aromas, whose tones become more intense, ending with a finish of incomparable softness.
