LYMITED releases award-winning wine in partnership with Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs
Lymited, the go-to digital platform to buy and sell collectible luxury, has secured an exclusive partnership with Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs to retail 10 bottles of its award-winning Cuvée Elena in the UK. The wine is available exclusively in magnum bottles (1.5l). The corresponding agreement with Lymited has been signed by the Chateau's owner Andrei Filatov. Proceeds from this collaboration will be donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
Cuvée Elena, named after the spouse of Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs owner, is produced from a one-hectare plot of Chardonnay vines surrounded by some of the most revered Chateaux in the world. Developed by winemaker Louis Mitjaville and the Chateau team, the 2019 Cuvée Elena is the first-ever Chardonnay out of the Saint-Emilion commune.
The Global Chardonnay Masters 2020 heralded Cuvée Elena as one of the best premium Chardonnays in the world, awarding it one of its coveted gold medals. The unique bottles that hold the wine have been created in the artisanal workshops of French glassmaker Waltersperger, they won the Red Dot for Design Award and are considered works of art in their own right.
The wine will be available on Lymited.com when the luxury marketplace’s Wine, Whisky and Spirits category launches in Summer 2021. For every bottle sold, €1000 will be donated to GOSH. London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital treats seriously ill children. Charitable donations help raise essential funds to continue the hospital’s incredible work.
Paul Graham, Head of Wines, Whiskies and Spirits at Lymited: “What better way to launch Lymited’s new Wine, Whiskies and Spirits category than with one of the world’s finest Chardonnays and with proceeds going to a worthy cause? Cuvée Elena represents more than just a white wine in a large bottle from one of the most famous wine growing regions in the world. It is a wine which breaks tradition, which challenges ideas, more than that, fulfils on hype. We are delighted to be working with the Chateau La Grace Dieu des Prieurs and its team to bring this project to our clients and, in doing so, provide needed funds to Great Ormond Street Hospital.”
