Denmark: Chablis marking time following the 2021 vintage


The low harvest of 2021 had a major impact on exports of Chablis wines to Denmark, which accounted for 43% of white Bourgogne export volumes on average over the previous five years, compared with just 32% in 2022.

The good news is that the arrival on the market of the 2022 vintage is reviving trade. In the first half of 2023, exports of Chablis wines rose by almost 53% compared to the first half of 2022. They were boosted in particular by AOC Chablis Premier Cru and Chablis Grand Cru, which doubled shipments in the space of a year, from 38,000 to 79,000 bottles. The Petit Chablis and Chablis AOCs also showed strong growth, with the number of bottles shipped increasing from  186,000 to 263,000.
