Wine Enthusiast: Rated Superb, one of the greats. "The nosing passes find an oaky/nut paste aroma with fruity notes of berries, dried fruit, plums, pears and soft cheese. The palate entry is composed, succulent and honeyed; by midpalate the flavors deepen to include caramel, rancio and orange rind. Finishes beautifully with depth, finesse and maturity." Nov 2006
Robert Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate: Rated An extraordinary wine of profound and complex character displaying all the attributes expected of a classic wine of its variety. Worth a special effort to find, purchase and consume. "...We finished with the new release of Tesseron’s Cognac. The Tesseron family (currently the proprietors of St.-Estèphe’s Lafon-Rochet and Pauillac’s Pontet-Canet) made its fortune in the Cognac business, and it is one of the few families to possess ancient stocks of great vintages that have not been diluted with water or manipulated in any manner. I’m no expert, but their newest release, the 1953, seems close in quality to the 1929. Slightly darker than the 1929, the 1953 is pure silk, which at this alcohol level is very dangerous indeed. The complex aromatics can fill a room." 'Chez Josephine (aka Chez Dumonet), WA Hedonist's Gazette Feb 2007~Robert Parker, Jr.
Distillery: "The color: Splendid mahogany. The nose: 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.
The palate: 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.
Tesseron Cognac Lot N° 53 XO Perfection is a blend of our most sublime stocks of Grande Champagne Cognac. It has a sumptuous topaz colour with a bouquet of plums, figs, and chocolate on the palate. This Cognac borders on perfection, finesse and complexity complemented by a refreshing lift on the finish."
The Spirit Journal: Given 5 Stars and a Highest Recommendation. "Perfumed scents of sweet oak, vanilla bean, with fruity notes of berries, dried fruit. The palate entry is serenely composed, succulent, sweet as ripe red fruit, and honeyed. Depth, finesse, power and maturity."~F. Paul Pacult
Scotland on Sunday: Given 5 Stars. "The perfect sipping and sniffing cognac. This is very cheap for a top notch cognac. This one delivers red fruits, peppery spice, candied peel, all threaded with harmonious oak and a gentle warm glow. Lovely *****."
