Describe and explain the likely causes of the rise in the demand for Champagne in recent years. Tim Hoffmann Economics 11 IB HL 23/09/03 The rise in demand for champagne recently can be set down to certain factors.

When champagne is considered, substitutes such as wine or perhaps whisky must be taken into account. If wine is not selling well, or perhaps it is a very good year for selling and the prices are allowed to rise, there will be a lower demand for wine.

A fall in the price of substitutes would also increase the demand for champagne. ...read more.
