Tesseron Cognac Lot No. 76 XO Tradition Cognac
An exceptional blend of reserve stocks of Grande Champagne Cognac, matured to perfection in old casks. Lot N° 76 immediately establishes its quality on the nose which exhibits a wealth of caramelised peaches, almond and candied fruit aromas. This carries through magnificently on to the palate, with rich, delicate flavours of nuts and dried fruits. A rare range of tasteful sensations. Color: Very clear and bright. Nose: Very alluring and expressive, this presents a sensation of fruit compote layered with hints of honey and leather, all lifted by floral tones - very elegant. Palate: Generous on attack, this presents a wonderful, spicy vitality, complementing a harmonious, rounded style.
The bouquet includes delicate fragrances of spice, sesame seed, light oak, pineapple, light toffee and brown sugar. The palate entry is elegant and moderately sweet; at midpalate there are flavors of ripe pear, white grapes, cake frosting, oloroso Sherry, orange peel and dark honey. Ends up sweet, satiny and long in the throat.
