The Maison Abel Tesseron renowned for producing old and mature blends, used to present their samples under ‘Lot’ numbers, that historically was the trade term used to identify a blend.
Using this traditional method of identification and delving into the cellars of their legendary collection of age-old Grande Champagne reserves, the Tesseron family has released four numbered ‘Lot’ cognacs; reflecting the lifetimes’ work of four generations of refined cognac makers.Each of these cognacs illustrates the mastery and artfulness of their heritage.
Rare jewel of the Tesseron collection of cognacs. A unique blend of legendary Grande Champagne, the cream of our oldest and rarest stocks, lovingly aged for more than three generations. Balancing power and finesse, EXCEPTION has a floral bouquet, allied to chocolate and mocha notes. This is complemented by that elusive, ethereal nose which is so typical of only the very best old cognac. This subtle elixir has an extraordinarily long aftertaste, and its lovely amber highlights reflect its very slow ageing – the quintessence of elegance.
Color : Lustrous topaz
Nose : Heady, decadent nose, followed by layers of leather, honey, figs, plums and exotic fruit laced with oak
Palate : Supremely elegant, combines macerated dried fruit with hints of mocha and cocoa, refreshed by floral aromatics. Extremely well balanced and wonderfully complex with marmalade notes emerging on a persistent, stylish finish.
