The Domaine d’ Elise is a pocket sized estate of 13 ha which lies at Milly on the slopes above the Premier Cru vineyards of Cote de Lechet. Wines from Frederic Prain have a distinguishing characteristic as he harvests his grapes later than usual in order to get very ripe fruits.
Matured for seven months on its lees for added complexity. The tangy, fresh citrus notes are beautifully supported by layers of warm rich fruit. Lighter style than its broader richer sibling Chablis.
Click below to hear more about the wine, direct from owner Frederic Prain:
A firm, dry, flinty nose with elegantly stony fruit on the palate. There's no great depth but it's elegant and fresh. Frederic Prain, one of the rare outsiders in Chablis – he came from as far away as Paris – describes himself as the EasyJet of Chablis. He wants his wine to be accessible.- 92 pts Rosemary George MW, Decanter Magazine
