TESSERON COGNAC LOT N°29 EXCEPTION is the rare jewel of the Tesseron collection of Cognacs. A unique blend of legendary Grande Champagne, the cream of our 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. THE NOSE : Here again we have that 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 : Supremely elegant, this combines macerated dried fruit with hints of mocha and cocoa, refreshed by floral aromatics.
