Gently push open the door of the Tesseron home in Châteauneuf-sur-Charente to discover the family treasure: a unique collection of the finest Cognacs. This treasure trove dates back to the nineteenth century when Abel Tesseron acquired this property and began his collection of rare and priceless Cognacs. He adopted a long term policy of building up stocks of eaux-de-vie, carefully conserved in a twelfth century crypt.
A tradition continued by his son and grandson Alfred, who runs the business today and who also owns the prestigious Château Pontet-Canet, a Pauillac Classified Growth in 1855.
The Cognacs within the Tesseron range are specifically labelled as “Lots”, a term rarely used in Charente. As Alfred Tesseron explains: "These “Lots” are, in fact, blends taken from our reserve stocks."
