Celebrate the year of the rat with new Champagne Ernest Rapeneau Lunar New Year Limited Edition

Every year at Wine Connection we celebrate Chinese New Year with a curated Cuvee wine that represents the animal of the Chinese Zodiac Lunar New Year.

The Chinese Zodiac, known as Sheng Xiao, is based on a twelve-year cycle, each year in that cycle related to an animal sign. The cycle starts in the following order, rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig.

Just take a look at the lineup of our previous Chinese New Year selections for the year of the rooster, dog, pig and rat this year.

There has been a relationship between human and the 12 zodiacal animals. It is common among the Chinese tradition to associate the years represented by the animals with the characters and traits of people, similar to the beliefs in western astrology.

Ernest Rapeneau founded his champagne and wine business in 1901 in the village of Hautvillers, the cradle of champagne. However, it was not until 1927, when the viticultural boundaries of Champagne were fixed, that Ernest began to specialise in the champagne trade.

The Rapeneau family philosophy is an uncompromising commitment to honoring and continuing their vineyard and winemaking traditions. The family's 4th generation's goal is to build on this heritage, serving their reputation as a top champagne family owned estate.
