‘The Swiss market is particularly marked by vintage notoriety and by an export market structure favourable to high-end products,” the CIVB remarks.

Indeed, Switzerland is second only to Hong Kong in the proportion of wine costing over €9 per litre shipped there.

Around 42% of all Bordeaux wine exported to Switzerland falls in this top-most bracket and a further 37% costs €4.5-€9/l ex-cellar. Just 6% costs less than €3/l.

Bordeaux only accounts for 29% of all French AOC wines exported to Switzerland by volume but represents 45% of the value.
