Hans acknowledges the design of the Signature Collection decanters, “Tesseron insists that bottles are heavy, detail-oriented and carefully designed for a memorable pour,” and says of Tresor “… special blends like the Tresor make use of these rare spirits, for a cognac that is truly unlike anything else and surely made to be treasured, shared and enjoyed.”

Men’s lifestyle website, Men’s Health, included The Signature Collection in their “The Best Food and Booze Gifts for Men” holiday gift guide story. Displaying an image of the entire collection, Men’s Health favorably reviews the cognacs and Tesseron Cognac, saying “If there was ever a “craft” distillery for cognac, Tesseron would be it. For over 100 years the Tesseron family has been quietly making some of the world’s finest cognacs on a small estate in the heart of the region, available only to the major houses for use in their quality blends. But 10 years ago, owner and cellar master Alfred Tesseron released his own blends of French brandy whose quality ranges from excellent to ethereal. This year, Tesseron released four signature expressions in handblown bottles just in time for the holidays. Yes, it’s expensive, but for this level of quality it’s worth it.”
