Tesseron is a Cognac brand by the Tesseron family who are also owners of Château Pontet-Canet. Abel Tesseron created his own cognac company in 1905. He carefully built up stocks of eaux-de-vie conserved in a 12th century crypt. Today, the family is selling increasingly more cognac under the Tesseron brand. The cognacs in the Tesseron range are named as 'lots'. As Alfred Tesseron explains, "These 'lots' are, in fact, blends taken from our reserve stock".
