The new, small domain of La Terrasse d'Elise was started in 1998 by the garrulous Xavier Braujou. Xavier Braujou is an extraordinary wine maker; spending extremely lots of time at the vine, un compromising, metriculous.

His vines and wines are treated as naturally as possibl, with minimum chemical treatments in the vineyards, and with no fining, using only natural yeasts, and very little sulphur used in the wine making process. Although 85% of Xavier's land is within the AOC appellation, all his wines are labelled as Vin de Pays, to allow him to have more room to express the character of each varietal. He is one of the last wine makers to graft his own vines in the vieyard, allowing him to continue a selection massale, choosing the vine stocks from within his own domain, with no clone vines.
