A big cellar of old cognacs. An old cellar in the town of Chateauneuf who have a range of cognacs with numbers on the labels denoting their age
The 1953 is an excellent cognac with a good rancio only found in cognacs that have aged for many years in oak. They use a number system to identify vintages and claim to use a little caramel to balance colour.
|Aroma||The wonderful, heady aromatic tang, borne of long wood ageing is immediately compelling. This gives way to hints of wood, dried fruits & tobacco - very rich and generous.|
|Distillation||Traditional Charentaise distillation.|
|Flavour||An extremely appetising cognac, opulent, rounded and yet vivacious. Pepper & spices emerge initially before revealing dark chocolate and fresh herbs. Complex, it shows supreme finesse, supple opulence and very good length|
|Grape Variety||Unusually all three traditional Cognac grape varieties Ugni Blanc, Folle Blanche and Colombard are still grown on the Tesseron estates.|
