GLOBAL: Domestic Champagne sales dive, but non-EU exports up
Champagne sales fell 17% in France in March, but exports outside the EU edged up, latest figures show.
Global Champagne sales by volume fell by 12% in March but rallied in April, according to trade body the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin de Champagne (CIVC).
The drop was largely due to the fall in France and a 11.2% dip in exports to the European Union (EU).
In contrast, exports to destinations outside of the EU rose by 1.5%.
Global figures for the first quarter of 2013 showed a fall of 3.6% on the same period in 2012.
“Global figures for April show an increase of 6.3% (on the same month last year) so it is still a little too early to draw any conclusions from the data we have for the beginning of 2013," the CIVC told just-drinks.
