Boizel Chanoine Champagne has reported a rise in its first half turnover as shipments increases and the group's brokerage activities performed well.

The result led the company to reconfirm its estimates for a 10% leap in full year net profits.

The Champagne company saw turnover in the period reach €37.73m (US$46.56m), a 28.2% year-on-year increase.

Half the increase came from Champagne shipments and the other half from a strong showing at its CGV subsidiary, which specialises in Champagne brokerage, the company said.
