United Kingdom: Bourgogne confirms its return to growth in 2020

Key figures 2020 for Bourgogne wines in the UK

  • The leading market by volume for Bourgogne wines
  • The second-biggest market in terms of revenue for Bourgogne wines

Exports: 16.36 million bottles (up 9.6% over 2019), worth €164 million (up 12.4%)
of which by volume :

► Still white wines: 82%
► Still red/rosé wines: 14%
► Crémant de Bourgogne: 4%

In 2020, Bourgogne wines accounted for 12% of the total volume of French AOC wine exported to the UK for 16% of the revenue.

As we wait for the new rules related to Brexit to be introduced, the UK increased its wine imports in 2020, up 8.3% by volume and 1.2% in terms of revenue compared to 2019. This was particularly beneficial for French wines, which reclaimed market share and were up 6.6% by volume and 0.7% in terms of revenue compared to 2019.
