Tesseron "Exception" Lot No. 29 XO Grande Champagne Cognac (750ml) (Cannot ship - store pickup only)

SKU #1023538 100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Tesseron family, who made their fortune in Cognac (but are probably best known by wine lovers as the proprietor of Pontet Canet and Lafon Rochet) released tiny quantities of single vintage Cognacs. Although French law does not permit a vintage date to be used, this is all from 1929, and is very limited in availability. I'm not an expert on Cognac, but anything this smooth, silky, potent, and aromatic, is truly great stuff. It is about as ethereal Cognac as anyone could ever hope to drink.

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The NV Cognac Lot 29 is another beauty that offers incredible complexity, as well as length. More finesse-oriented, with a seamless, fine, elegant texture as well as notes of orange peel, caramelized citrus, and spice, it’s slightly less powerful than the Lot 53 release yet is more nuanced.

95 points Vinous

 100% Grande Champagne. Dark amber in color, but super-bright and fresh on the fruity, floral nose, offering aromas of lily, fig, pineapple and green tobacco. In the mouth, flavors of marmalade and mango chutney are then enveloped by chocolate and hazelnut, tinged with baking spice. Finishes with a tropical note of mature rancio. (JW)  (9/2019)

K&L Notes

Four stars and "Highly Recommended" by F. Paul Pacult of Spirit Journal: "Bronze/copper/ topaz color; ideal purity. This aroma owns a similar nut paste/oak scent as the Lot No. 53; with further air exposure, the bouquet takes on an orangy/citrusy leaning as the smell turns fruiter the more it aerates; lovely and compelling. The palate entry is supple, fruity sweet, and ripe; the midpalate stage highlights melded flavors of light caramel, marzipan, and nougat. Ends up oaky sweet, lightly spiced, and satiny. Like this cognac very much."
