I met Dennis and Ellie over 10 years ago while traveling with Papillon and have been buying wines from Elden ever since! In fact, it was because of Dennis and Ellie that I started my love affair with the wines of Burgundy. And what a love affair that has been! Because of this wonderful couple I have had the privilege of being introduced to and ultimately collecting and drinking some of the most rare and phenomenal burgundies… and for that I am grateful!
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.
We think of you often…every time we drink delicious Burgundy wines from Elden Selections!
Elden Wine is a great continuing source of high quality, small production Burgundies. Each year there is something for everyone in both red and white, from village wines through to grand crus. This is a wonderful resource for the Burgundy lover.
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!!!
My wife and I just tried the Capitain Ladoix ‘Micaude’. We were absolutely floored by how good it is! You are absolutely right that it is a blend of elegance and finesse with powerhouse side that is hidden away. I consider it be the best value wine that I have purchased from you so far. This is one wine that is going to be a staple for me.
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.
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 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!
Dennis’s connections with the small vintners and his local knowledge have allowed us to source fantastic Burgundy that is not always otherwise available in the US. His wine notes and blog keep us informed of his tastings and how the winemakers are handling current conditions. Elden has become our personal taster, contact and buyer in Burgundy!
