Cognac Tesseron Lot 76 XO 'Tradition'
“Full soft and mouthfilling. An ever-changing interplay between chestnut, honey, raspberry, beeswax, peaches in heavy syrup, and dried apricot. The wood is crisp, spicy and well-balanced, and the finish has a lovely touch of crystallised fruit” 95 points, Wine & Spirit Magazine
“The age alone - not to mention the smooth, seductive texture and the extraordinarily complex flavours of butterscotch and cream that linger for ages - makes the price of this magnificent cognac rather attractive.” Max Allen, The Australian ‘Wish’ Magazine
An exceptional blend of 25- 30 year old, reserve stocks of both Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne Cognacs, distilled predominantly in the mid-1970s and then matured in old casks until bottling. It has a striking copper colour. On the nose there are lifted fragrances of roasted nuts, wood spice, leatherwood honey, and baked pears, while the deep palate is viscous, dense even, with notes of ripe pear, almond, oloroso sherry, orange peel, and again, leatherwood honey. The finish is long and warming with hints of brown sugar, vanilla and salt. A stunning, mouth filling wine.
