What We Do
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.
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.
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.
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.
We think of you often…every time we drink delicious Burgundy wines from Elden Selections!
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!
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.
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!!!
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.
I’ve had the pleasure of buying Elden Selection wines for more than a decade. They personally know the producers, and present excellent wines you can’t get here, at very reasonable prices.
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.
