Pont des Arts Cognac XO "Infinity" 40 Years Old Fine Champagne x Pierre Herme Macarons and Chocolate Bonbons


Pont des Arts and Pierre Hermé Paris brought together their unique concepts and the French “savoir-faire” to create a unique “French taste” experience. Pont des Arts has been creating limited edition art and wine since 2010 and is now available in 15 countries. Pont des Arts is a bridge between art and wine, East and West, collectors and newcomers alike. It has married the best from the Art world (starting with Zao Wou-Ki, Yue Minjun and Miquel Barceló) and the wine world and spirits (Paul Pontallier and other highly respected wine experts from France such as the Godet family).


 It comes exclusively from the heart and the best terroirs of the Cognac region: Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne. It has complex, subtle aromas of violet, jasmine, honey and prune, and it is characterised by a great elegance, a unique velvety texture and a memorable taste that lasts for up to 15 minutes on the palate.


Pierre Hermé Paris Chocolate Bonbons: Like a magic potion, chocolate is a source of intense, unique pleasures. In order to fully savour the desirable characteristics of a good chocolate, it should be consumed in a quiet environment. Chocolate unfolds all of its aromas and its ideal texture at a room temperature of about 21°C.


The originality of this very unique Cognac also directly results from its label, designed by the world renowned Chinese artist Yue Minjun. Through its idiosyncratic style of bold humour, the snake is an allegory of the number 8, the lucky number in Chinese folk tradition. Bending to chase its own tail, Yue Minjun snake symbolises a graphic infinity also expressed through the cognac’s very special taste.
