Exports of French wine to China have fallen by nearly 10% in the first half of 2013, but the European country maintains its leadership on China's imported wine market, according to reports.

Figures from the China Chamber of Commerce for Imports and Exports of Foods, Native Produce and Animal Products, reported by China Daily today (22 July), revealed that in the first five months of this year, French wine imports to China fell by 9.3% to US$280m. However, overall, imports of foreign wines to China rose by 10.6% to $660m, it was reported. 

Spain, Italy, the US and Australia registered gains of more than 30%, the figures showed.

France still has 46.3% of the country's imported wine market. 

Last month, China launched a trade investigation into European wine exports, with some Bordeaux producers voicing serious fears about the move.
