Stuart Todd – French wine and spirits exports rose by 18.3% in value in 2010, according to the sector’s export trade body, FEVS.

Exports reached EUR9.1bn for the year, FEVS said today (14 February). “The business rebound in 2010 is largely a result of an excellent performance in Asian markets and recovery in North America,“ said FEVS president Claude de Jouvencel. „In the EU, recovery has been more timid.”

In terms of product, last year saw a 33% increase in Cognac sales to EUR1.85bn, while vodka exports jumped by 40% to EUR332m. Champagne exports rose by 22% to EUR1.9bn.

The US remained the leading importer of French wines and spirits, with exports to the country of EUR1.6bn, up by 25% on 2009. Sales to the UK rose by 7.5% to EUR1.3bn, while sales to China leapt by 79% to EUR564.8m.
