Bennett Alexander of Fox News recently conducted an interview and cognac tasting with Michael Ploetz, the Director of Food and Beverage at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.  Mr. Ploetz shared some of the hotel’s extremely rare offerings from its “Remarkable Spirits” menu, which features, in the words of Mr. Ploetz, “bottles that you can’t get anywhere else.”  Alongside other prized cognacs are some of Tesseron’s offerings.  Mr. Alexander writes,  “The Tesseron Extreme, Ploetz explained, is his favorite of those he’s sampled because it has a nuttiness and oakiness that evoke Spanish brandies.  I found it started smoothly and gained strength as it played on the palate, finally finishing softly, but lingering.”
