The Market Watch Magazine article, titled “Champagne Pops its Top” features Bollinger and Vintus, also highlighting a quote from Vintus CEO, Michael Quinttus. The total export value of Champagne has gone up 58% since the start of the pandemic, and this category has far out performed its sparkling counterparts such as Cava and Prosecco.
The article cites Champagne Bollinger, “Just outside the top ten, Bollinger continues to make progress in the U.S., imported by New York-based Vintus. “The last few years have certainly seen an unprecedented boom for Champagne generally, and for Bollinger Champagne specifically,” says Vintus CEO Michael Quinttus. “The combination of increased consumption of ‘special occasion’ wines at home on a regular basis, due to a reduction in travel and restaurant spending during Covid-19, made a $75 bottle of Bollinger Special Cuvée an accessible splurge. Every single case of Bollinger, from Special Cuvée to R.D. (an ultra-premium cuvée), is now allocated by account, a situation that was frankly unthinkable only four or five years ago.”
