Break-even Bottle No. No. 27 | Tesseron Cognac Lot N° 53 XO Perfection | The Cottage

Tuesday February 23, 2021
4:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Our break-even bottles are exquisite and rare, outside of what you’ll typically see on menus. One of those drinks that you savor and immediately want to share with your best friend. We feel the same way and want to share these with you, so we’re selling these bottles in 1 oz. pours for cost. (Which is, legally speaking, the lowest we can go.) Tuesdays only, we open the bottle at 4p and sell 1 oz pours until it’s gone.

Reservations (https://resy.com/cities/bol/the-cottage-bothell) highly recommended but not required.
.
Bottle No. 27 is exquisite. Tesseron Cognac Lot N° 53 XO Perfection is a blend of our most sublime stocks of Grande Champagne Cognac. It has a sumptuous topaz color 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.
.
COMPOSITION: Ugni Blanc and Colombard Grapes
.
BLEND: Grande Champagne
.
AGED: More than two generations in Limousin oak casks
.
TASTING NOTES
.
THE COLOUR: 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 – extraordinarily rich and generous.
.
THE PALATE: An extremely appetizing cognac, opulent, rounded, and yet vivacious. Pepper & spices merge initially before revealing dark chocolate and fresh herbs. Complex, it shows supreme finesse, supple opulence, and exceptionally good length.
.
PRESS CUTTINGS
ROBERT PARKER: We finished with the new release of Tesseron’s Cognac. The Tesseron family made its fortune in the Cognac business and it is one of the few families to possess ancient stocks. (…) The Lot 53 is pure silk, which at this alcohol level is very dangerous indeed. The complex aromatics can fill a room. 98 points
