Ray Isle recently wrote a Tasting Room post about Tesseron’s new Signature Collection for Food & Wine Magazine’s Web site.  The full article is here, see below for an excerpt!

“As with many luxury products, there’s Cognac and then, sir, there is Cognac. The Tesseron family has been in the Cognac business for over a hundred years, but they’ve stayed under the radar in the past, as their focus has been supplying the major houses with aged Cognacs to be used in top bottlings (their family cellar contains glass demijohns of spirits going back to the 1880s). They finally launched their own brand in 2003, and just have released a new “Signature Collection,” which I recently had the opportunity to taste. Admittedly, these Cognacs don’t come cheap. On the other hand, they are also extraordinarily good. Put it this way: If Bill Gates wanted to buy me a bottle, I’d say, “Gee, Bill, that’s a mighty generous gesture.” And then I’d drink it, happily.”

Tesseron Cognac recently unveiled its new Signature Collection, a prestige line of XO Cognacs in fanciful new gift boxes inspired by sample containers. Cognac Expert, an independent blog dedicated to Cognac, gives an overview of the three cognacs in a recent post. An excerpt is below. Click here to be directed to the full post.

“The Signature Collection of Tesseron Cognac includes three different cognacs:

Tesseron XO Passion

Tesseron XO Passion is an Ugni Blanc only blend, consisting of around 30 eaux-de-vies from the Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois region. Each has matured for at least 10 years in oak barrels. It’s described as light and balanced, elegant and floral, with hints of spices.

Tesseron Extra “Légende”

Tesseron Extra “Légende” is a combination of Ugni Blanc and Folle Blanche grapes, using eaux-de-vies solely from Cognacs’s Premier Cru region, Grande Champagne. A special characteristic of this cognac is that every one of the blend of eaux-de-vies were matured in cellars with different humidity levels.

Tesseron Tresor

The Tesseron Tresor Cognac is the flagship of the Signature series, limited to 3000 bottles. It’s made from Ugni Blanc, Colombard and Folle Blanche grapes. And as for the “Légende”, there are also some eaux-de-vies from the grande champagne region in the blend.”

In the June issue of Decanter, wine writer Margaret Rand writes about her interview with Alfred Tesseron, winemaker of Pontet-Canet. The Tesseron family had been purely Cognac producers until Guy Tesseron, Alfred’s father purchsed the fifthe-growth Pontet-Canet ins 1975 and Alfred took over full management in 1994. Alfred tells Rand of his visions of becoming fully biodynamic, he said “when you arrive at a certain level, you want to progress, and I thought biodynamism was a way to progress.” Since 2005 Pontet-Canet has been 100% biodynamic, except for a a few weeks in 2007 which delayed certification until 2010.
