Cognac Park is the flagship brand of Distillerie Tessendier, a Cognac house established in 1880. Today, in its fourth generation of ownership, the Tessendier Estate maintains vineyards of more than 60 acres in the heart of one of the most exclusive growing areas of Cognac: the Borderies. Brothers and Master Blenders, Lilian and Jérôme Tessendier, expertly compose their blends with extreme attention to detail at their distillery, located in the town of Jarnac. The wines used in the distillation of Cognac Park come from four crus within the Cognac region: Grand Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, and Fins Bois. Each year, the Tessendier family distills its Cognacs from the 3000 hectoliters of wine produced on its own estate in Borderies and buys another 40,000 hl from winemakers in the other crus, maintaining relationships that span several generations.
Cognac Park Carte Blanche VS Cognac is comprised of approximately equal parts wine from Fins Bois and Petite Champagne. 100% Ugni Blanc. This Cognac is aged in new, lightly toasted French oak for 6 months before being transferred to used casks for 3–6 years. The balance of floral, high tones indicative of Petite Champagne and more robust fruit notes from Fins Bois make this an incredibly versatile Cognac for cocktailing. 40% alc/vol.
NOSE: Aromas of spring-dried flowers, baked apples and macerated cherries.
PALATE: Structured but delicate.
FINISH: Perfectly robust and subtly peppery.
