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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
NEW TO BURGUNDY?
They will tell you that Burgundy is complicated. That it’s expensive. But don’t believe everything you hear. Elden Selections will show you you otherwise. Let us take you on a journey. We’ll start by getting to know you and your palate. We’ll find out what you like, not tell you what you are supposed to like. We’ll take you into the cellars and the vineyards. Show you how to read Burgundy like a map. And most importantly, we’ll introduce you to lots of great winemakers. Because great winemakers make great wine. There’s nothing complicated about it.
