Wine exports from Bordeaux last year plunged, according to local reports. Citing figures from the Bordeaux wine council CIVB, Le Figaro said yesterday (13 April) that wine exports in 2004 fell by 12% in volume terms and by 22% in terms of value.
Of particular significance, the paper noted, were decreases in shipments to the UK - down by 32% in volume and 25% in value - and the US - down by 31% in volume and 55% in value.
The figures reveal a continuation of Bordeaux's falling exports in recent years, the paper said.
Around 1.77m hectolitres of Bordeaux wine were exported in 2004, with a total value of €1.07bn.
