Bordeaux and Champagne have seen increased demand in the run-up to Christmas. According to the wine platform Liv-ex, champagne increased by 2.5 per cent. Especially the Dom Pérignon 2012 was in great demand among wine lovers. Although the figures from Bordeaux were not too positive this year, the region was able to increase its market share by six percent compared to November. The market share of wines from Burgundy, on the other hand, was down, although the region holds the second largest market share overall, ahead of Champagne.

For the internationally operating investment company Cult Wines, Burgundy has been the sales driver this year. At the end of November, the Cult Wines Global Index had risen by 19.40 per cent due to rising Burgundy and Champagne prices. According to Cult Wines' regional figures, Burgundy wines saw the biggest price jump in 2022, rising 30.3 per cent year-on-year. Champagne, on the other hand, only increased in price by 18.6 per cent. The investment firm predicts that the strong imbalance between supply and demand for champagnes from the top vintages will continue to drive prices up despite the difficult economic situation.
