One family, one passion
La cave du XIIe siècle
The cool, damp Tesseron cellars dating back to the 13th century were once part of the crypt of the local church. It is here that the young 'eaux-de-vie' will be laid to rest, left in peace quietly to age and mature in old oak casks for many years. These casks were made by craftsmen from ancient oaks felled in the nearby forests of Limousin. During maturation the ageing Cognac will gently oxidise, soft tannins will be absorbed from the old oak casks and some will evaporate and be lost forever – the 'angels' share.
