Global Champagne sales rise to 326 million bottles - Cautious optimism for 2023

Country-specific data, including for Austria and Germany, are expected to be available and published in March 2023.

France recorded a slight decline in sales of minus 1.7 percent, with 138.4 million bottles. Exports (EU and third countries) of 187.5 million bottles were up 4.3 percent year on year. The share of exports in total sales thus rose from 45 percent ten years ago to just over 57 percent today.

Maxime Toubart, President of the Syndicat Général des Vignerons (umbrella organization of Champagne vintners) and Co-President of the Comité Champagne, puts it this way: "I am delighted with these results. These figures reward all our efforts to make Champagne an exceptional wine."

David Chatillon, President of the Union des Maisons de Champagne (umbrella organization of Champagne Houses) and Co-President of the Comité Champagne, says: "Champagne, the unique wine of festive occasions, has again accompanied people all over the world in 2022, who have rejoiced at the end of restrictions and have rediscovered the pleasure of celebrating, going out and traveling."

The 2022 results confirm that demand has recovered quickly from the shock of the 2020 pandemic. Champagne wines continue to occupy a unique place in the minds and hearts of consumers around the globe. Moreover, the wines of the 2022 vintage, marked by sunshine and remarkable in quantity and quality, will help to replenish stocks. This makes the winemakers and houses of Champagne optimistic about being able to meet market demand.

Thus, the people of Champagne remain confident despite the geopolitical and world economic situation, which calls for cautious forecasts for 2023.
