The global Champagne wine market remained flat during the first half of the year (source: CIVC).

Following a poor start to the year in France, due to domestic events, and with exports stagnating, the LANSON-BCC Group’s sales show a certain time-lag.

To some extent, this negative situation reflects the sales deferred to the second half of the year, particularly in the UK, where Champagne Lanson has historically had strong market shares.

Like each year, it is important to note that LANSON-BCC records around one third of sales over the first six months of the year, but half of fixed costs, and its results at June 30th cannot be representative of the full year.

The definitive, audited results for the first half of 2015 will be released on Thursday September 10th, after close of trading.
