Lot No.90 X.O. Ovation Cognac
As Cognac can’t really use vintages, for many years Tesseron have used their Lot Numbers to reflect the age of core components within their blends. Therefore, Lot No.90 X.O. Ovation may well contain elements dating back to the 1990s.
It was created from Ugni Blanc grapes grown on the finest terroirs in the region – Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne and Fins Bois – and is matured in oak barrels for ten years, imparting immense richness and complexity. The Cognac of choice for Air France and their business lounges, it displays crisp pear, savoury herbs, dried fruits, toasted almonds, plum crumble, marzipan and polished antique furniture. Filled into a super stylish decanter bottle, this is worthy of a standing ovation on any occasion.
The family-run Tesseron Cognac House was established in 1905 by Abel Tesseron. He began by collecting all the oldest and finest eaux-de-vie he could lay his hands on, before progressing onto distilling, ageing and blending his own Cognacs. However, for a long time, most of the company’s luxury very old Cognacs were sold to other houses and were used to form the heart of their blends. For this reason, Tesseron remained little known outside of the region for many years.
Fast forward to 2003 and the family decided to start bottling under their own name. They were quickly awarded a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker; the only Cognac to receive such an accolade. They focus on “X.O. and beyond”, staunchly refusing to release young Cognac and thus making them the go-to choice for connoisseurs. Having been passed down through the family, Tesseron is now run by Alfred Tesseron and his niece Melanie, with a little help from his children Justine and Noé. The family also own the organic and biodynamic Bordeaux Fifth Growth Château Pontet-Canet, just a stone’s throw from Château Mouton Rothschild.£13.57 per 100.00ml
