Bourgognes International

The exclusive letter for wine distributors

N°62 / February 2018

© BIVB / Michel Joly - 15 partners to create Cité des Vins et des Climats de Bourgogne in Hôtel-Dieu, Beaune

A major step forward for the Cité des Vins et des Climats de Bourgogne


This step represents the cornerstone of their commitment to create the entertaining, educational, and cultural structures this project represents. Their seal of approval confirms the financing plan and launches the operational phase for these three Cités des Vins structures that will become key vectors for the promotion of the Bourgogne region, its wines, its traditions, and its Climats.

The sites in Beaune, Chablis, and Mâcon will reflect the local offer and allow visitors to discover the many different aspects of our region from north to south.

The next step in early 2018: Launch of the call for tender for architects and designers
A project management consultant has been selected by the city of Beaune in partnership with the BIVB to prepare the launch of a tender process for architects and designers for the Cité des Vins in Beaune, in early 2018.

In parallel, the BIVB is launching a call for architectural projects for the renovation and extension of the sites of Chablis and Mâcon.

UK: Bourgogne wines continue to grow

Rather than suffering from the effects of Brexit and low volumes of available wines, sales of Bourgogne wines continue to grow in the UK.

Exports of Bourgogne wines continued to grow in 2016, with sales of 15.9 million bottles (up 7.4% on 2015). Export volumes, however, remained historically low. This seems to be the result of several factors: The market is a tricky one for certain appellations, lack of available wine for other appellations, successive increases in taxes on wine, and the economic impact of the looming Brexit.

Revenue also followed this upward trend, with two successive years of growth (up 11% year-on-year in 2016, and 4% in 2015). For the first 10 months of 2017, the potential for an upsurge in Bourgogne sales in this market was impacted by the low harvest volumes in 2016 in the Chablis region. As such, exports fell 6.2% by volume over the period. Revenue continued to grow (up 11.4% over the same period in 2016).
