What We Do
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.
Thanks for keeping our glasses full of good juice!
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!
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.
We think of you often…every time we drink delicious Burgundy wines from Elden Selections!
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!!!
It would be difficult to find a couple as totally entrenched in Burgundy as Dennis and Ellie. They have spent a lifetime delivering authentic experiences to countless travelers. I can’t imagine anyone who will work harder to bring the best examples of terroir driven Burgundy to your cellar.
We had a party last night for about 20 including all of the participants in our upcoming Octobertrip to Burgundy with you and Ellie. We enjoyed quite a few bottles of your wine and it helped make our party a success. We are enjoying drinking Burgundy every day, and appreciate your guidance.
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.
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!
Elden Selections is much more than just a place to buy Burgundy wine.
You can buy Burgundy anywhere.
But it’s nearly always that same Burgundy. Wines that have been rated and created by the industry and priced accordingly. And what’s worse, despite those prices, a lot of these wines will break your heart with mediocrity. Burgundy is a minefield, and many a wine lover has been scared away.Elden Selections is different. We specialize in small-production estate-bottled Burgundy wines, many that are not otherwise available in the US. We live in Burgundy. Have done for 30 years. We know these winemakers and their families. First and foremost they are farmers, and they know that there is no good wine without good grapes.
Living here means we can follow these winemakers year round. We see the harsh winter work in the vines, the frantic anxiety as spring explodes. Their summer is our summer. And when the harvest comes, it’s like any farming community. Word travels fast. So we know.
Elden Selections are wines from producers that we have known for years, wines that were cherry-picked first for our own cellar, wines that we have followed from bud burst to the bottle.
We are here to bring you closer to the real Burgundy, to give you an insider’s take on the wine and the region. We want you to meet the winemakers. We want you to know what is going on in the vines and what that means for the wine. We want you to taste as the locals taste, to think like a Burgundian… which ultimately lets you think for yourself.
Elden Selections takes you inside Burgundy. We are your feet on the ground, your finger in the pie, your tasting room in Burgundy, working closely with the winemakers themselves to bring you the best wine in every vintage.
