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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 think of you often…every time we drink delicious Burgundy wines from Elden Selections!
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!
