[preisage] (s.xiiex)

[ gdw]

[ FEW: 9,372a pretium; Gdf: 6,412c prisage; GdfC: ; TL: 7,1884 prisage; DEAF:  pris (preage); DMF:  prisage; TLF: ; OED:  prisage n.1 / prisage n.; MED: ; DMLBS: 2467 prisagium ]
presage,  prisage  

The specific sense of ‘duty levied upon imported wine’ is first attested in English from 1505 (1503 in a Latin source), and does not seem to have an Anglo-Norman precedent. However, the one adjectival use sub preisable (from 1393) suggests that the concept of such a tax must have existed in Anglo-Norman as well.
