About the 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 more than 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 its very slow ageing – the quintessence of elegance.

GRAPE VARIETALS Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard

APPELLATION Grande Champagne

AGED More than three generations in Limousin oak casks

THE COLOR Lustrous topaz
