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.
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.
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!
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 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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
