J.Dupont Invitation Box: Award-Winning XO and VSOP Cognac
You are cordially invited… to discover one of Cognac’s best kept secrets. The J.Dupont Box “Invitation” Cognac features 2 multi-award winning Cognacs made with 100% grapes grown in the most elite growth region, the Grande Champagne.
These are L’Art Nouveau VSOP and L’Art Deco XO, which are particularly celebrated in the world of Cognacs. This set of two Cognacs will make a fantastic gift for any lover of eaux-de-vie, and is a beautiful introduction to this highly coveted Cognac house.
Dupont has subtly nodded to two important art movements in French culture, including the golden age of the Belle Epoque and its promise of progress and creativity. The boldness and open minded nature of the movement perfectly encapsulates Dupont’s ability to craft Cognac.
- L’Art Nouveau Cognac is a captivating VSOP, which introduces the exceptional to the essential. Let your senses be taken on a journey by this blend, aged for at least four years in oak casks.
- L’Art Deco Cognac is a subtle blend with plenty of brightness and finesse, and an elegant finish. This is an XO Cognac aged for at least 10 long years in oak casks. Expect spicy and honeyed notes to take over the palate.
J. Dupont has been crafting Cognac for centuries, and has cultivated a set of vineyards in the Premier Cru, also known as the Grande Champagne to produce some of the most exquisite Cognacs in the region.
The Dupont Cognac Art Deco XO was awarded:
- Outstanding IWSC gold medal in 2014

- “Double Gold” at San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2014
The Dupont Art Nouveau VSOP has been awarded:
