Great job once again. You have turned me into a big white wine fan. Your description of a good white Burgundy hits the nail on the head: pure fruit, little or no wood, good acidity and floral freshness. This will be my standard on how to judge not only good Burgundy, but all white wine.
Thanks for keeping our glasses full of good juice!
I had all but given up on Burgundy. I just never had much luck buying Burgundy wines on my own, even at very good wine stores. Now I am kicking myself for having bought so much California Pinot Noir. They do not hold a candle to Burgundy. I have been reading a lot about the Burgundy appellations, and your characterization of the wines is so accurate. You are really good at this.
My husband and I have been enthusiastic customers of Elden Wine from its inception. He always wanted to save the wine for special occasions, I always wanted it to make an occasion special!
I was in Burgundy in the summer of 1996 and I heard of a young man who wanted to export small-production burgundy. I signed on as customer #5 in 1997. I have never been disappointed in Dennis Sherman in any way. It is always a delight to do business with Elden Selections.
I really appreciate how much you have helped me build my collection. I look forward to continuing my Burgundy journey with you. I have learned so much about the region and its wines because of you. I am so glad that I decided to give these wines another try after years of frustration. You made it possible and I am deeply grateful.
My wife and I shared a bottle of your William Nahan Chablis last evening on our deck at sunset. You cannot beat that for a wine experience. Congratulations on the ‘fruit’ of your labor!
All I can say is that you have achieved what I would love to….living in Burgundy, getting first-hand information on vintages and small producers, and all the while bringing quality into the glass of a Burgundy lover. Thank you, Dennis!!!
We have been buying from Elden Selections for many years, and it has always been a pleasure to do so. Dennis Sherman’s offerings are from small producers, often from lesser-known appellations. The quality-price ratio is always high, and the wines represent good value. Elden Selections are knowledgeable. You can deal with them with confidence.
Dennis Sherman has an intimate insider’s knowledge of Burgundy. Based in the region for over twenty five years, he has a great understanding of everything Burgundian, from the appellations and the wines to the history and the personalities, as well as a keen appreciation of just what makes these wines so great.
