Cognac Tesseron Lot 76 XO Cognac 100% Ugni Blanc grapes. The pristine condition of this stunningly copper-colored brandy is inspiring - it's gorgeous. In the nose there are delicate fragrances of spice, sesame seed, light oak, and baked pears; seven more minutes in the glass bring out pineapple, light toffee, milk, and brown sugar.
The palate entry is elegant, composed, and moderately sweet in more of an oaky than a fruity way; by the midpalate stage, there's flavor evidence of ripe pear, white grapes, cake frosting, oloroso sherry, orange peel and dark honey. Ends up sugary sweet, satiny textured, and long in the throat.
