The choice of the name "Victoire" for this Limited Edition cuvee is the reflection of the success and festive celebration in what Champagne is linked. The Rapeneau Family has taken inspiration from the name to create a fresh and lively Champagne. "Victoire" champagnes are made from grapes grown in the family vineyard. The grapes are carefully selected from prestigious terroirs, mainly Premiers Cru.

"A Victory, a moment of revelation…

The very first “Cuvée Victoire” was made in 1989 through the combined efforts of two brothers, the champagne wine enthusiast Jean-François Rapeneau and the oenologist Christophe Rapeneau.

As the 4th generationd of a Champagne family, the two visionary brothers were not satisfied with simply being the heirs: they wanted to make the best possible use of their know-how.

The choice of the name “Victoire” for their champagne is closely linked to Jean-François’ passion for falconry, the eagle being the symbol for Victory. The Romans depicted it with its wings outspread above their standards. In mythology, too, Zeus, the king of the Gods, is symbolised by an eagle.

Also, in ancient times, the name “Victory” was used for a divinity that was portrayed as the figure of a woman with wings. Christophe was inspired by this to create a wine full of freshness, vitality and vigour.

“Victoire” champagnes come from the family estate and are made with grapes taken from carefully selected terroirs, with particular emphasis on “Premier Cru” vineyards.

Champagne is a symbol of celebration, success and Victory…" Champagne Victoire
