Bordeaux exported 2 million hectolitres of wine (270 million bottles) in 2016. The region accounts for 17% of French wine exports in volume and 36% of the value. China and the US compensate for declining exports to Europe. The six largest markets for Bordeaux wines in value are:

  1. China: The growth continues and China is the biggest export country since 2015, both in volume and value. A third of the wines cost less than € 3 per litre (export price).
  2. Hong Kong: Very focused on high-end wines. In seventh place for volume.
  3. United States: Also a third place in terms of volume. The largest amount of wines is between 4.5 and 9 € per litre (export price).
  4. United Kingdom: Since the financial crisis of 2008/2009, exports to the UK is a little shaky. In fourth place also for volume.
  5. Japan
  6. Belgium: A small country but very faithful to Bordeaux. In second place in terms of volume.
