Lot 29 XO Exception

Grande Champagne

Lot 29 is the cream of Tesseron’s oldest and rarest stocks in Grande Champagne. It is a blend of Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard grapes, and is aged for at least three generations, approximately 75 years, in Limousin oak casks, with 30% coming from 1906 stock. Balancing power and finesse, it has an elusive, ethereal nose typical of only the very best old cognac, followed by layers of honey, figs, plums and exotic fruit laced with floral, oak, chocolate and mocha notes.  On the palate it is supremely elegant, with flavors of macerated dried fruits, and again hints of mocha and cocoa refreshed by floral notes.  Extremely well balanced and wonderfully complex with marmalade notes emerging on a very persistent, stylish finish.  The quintessence of elegance, to be contemplated when opened for a special occasion.
