The Champagne trade association Comité Champagne (CIVC) has recently published the 2015 export figures for champagne. Britain is still the country that imports the greatest volume of champagne while the United States is the number one country for value. (Sweden is curiously on an honourable 10th position.)

Champagne sold 312 million bottles last year, an increase with 1.7 %. France keeps 51.8 % for itself and exports 48.2 %.

The 10 largest export markets for champagne (by volume) are:

  1. UK
  2. US
  3. Germany
  4. Japan
  5. Belgium
  6. Australia
  7. Italy
  8. Switzerland
  9. Spain and
  10. Sweden

The Champagne houses dominate the export. They account for 71 % of exports. 19.5 % comes from growers (recoltant-manipulants, RM) and 9 % from cooperatives. Read more: champagne.fr (pdf).

If you want to contribute to the consumption then you can join us on the wine tour to Champagne this autumn. We’ll take you to some fabulous champagne producers.
