About

95

This is like a top-notch Burgundy; concentrated, focused and linear with scintillating fruit purity and stylish complexity. Aromas of white nectarine, rockmelon, brioche, toasted almond and flint lead to a finely textured palate that is beautifully weighted and flowing. The wine is attractive and intriguing at the same time, and delivers an extremely long, delicately mouth-watering finish. At its best: 2017 to 2024.

This is really fabulous with insane density like grand cru Burgundy. Full and layered with great concentration and structured. Lemon rind, apple pie and mineral undertones. It's all about tension and structure here.

Product Description:

"Pale primrose yellow, Elston '14 is stunning. An aroma of candied lemon and citrus blossom, then an explosion of peach crumble, apricot, lemon and nectarine. Notes of grapefruit and honey play through a soft, round palate of lemon custard and vanilla. With fabulous concentration and complexity, this is long, pure, fresh chardonnay with superb potential." - Winery
