China, strong growth in 2019


Dominated by French wine, the Chinese market remains strongly focused on red wines. In 2019, it accounted for 78% of Bourgogne wines exported to China.

However, the fall in volumes of Bourgogne white wines was not compensated by the impressive performance of Chablis wines.

Wine lovers from coastal cities appreciate more and more Bourgogne white wines, especially Chablis wines, which pair perfectly with their culinary specialities with fish and seafood.

Key figures in 2019 for Chablis wines in China
  • 20th biggest market by revenue
    22nd biggest market by volume

    Exports :
    115 800 bottles (+15% /2018), for 1.2 million d'€ (+28.7% /2018)
