Tesseron Cognac Lot N°29 XO Exception
Top 10 Spirits 2012
Tesseron Cognac Lot N°29 XO Exception is captivating to the eye, as the topaz-colored spirit shimmers and glistens in the glass. Derived from a combination of Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard grapes from the rarest Tesseron stocks, and aged for more than three generations in pure French Limousin oak casks, this spirit lives up to its heritage and promise. It is Grande Champagne at its best and most complex, with aromas of plums, figs, honey and a touch of mango and kiwi simultaneously assaulting and hugging the palate. The round, thick, viscous mouthfeel and lingering finish of this cognac make it work as its very own course, without the need of a food pairing.
