At Elden we think wine is all about who makes it! Meet our producers:
After the oenological studies and vineyard experience that took him to several different regions of France, Romuald Petit returned to his roots in 2005 to create a domain with just over 14 acres of vines in Saint-Verand.
Domaine Germain Pere et Fils
The Domaine Germain Père et Fils began in 1955 with vineyards situated uniquely in Saint Romain. At the base of its cliff, Saint Romain is a picturesque village, and was one of the earliest settlements and sanctuaries of the vine in Gallo-Roman Burgundy.
Domaine Thierry Mortet
We first met Thierry Mortet at one of the early editions of the ‘Grands Jours de Bourgogne’ where the tasting was of the two distinct village appellation zones on either side of the Combe Lavaux.
Domaine Bernard Munier
The Domaine Bernard Munier dates back six generations, to 1859, the date as well of the vaulted cellars that are now beneath his cuverie. Today it numbers almost 15 acres of vines in Chambolle-Musigny and Gevrey-Chambertin, as well as Gilly –les-Chateaux and Flagey-Echezeaux.
Domaine Michel Arcelain
We can tell you things about Michel Arcelain that at first would not seem to have anything to do with wine. But then everything in Michel’s life has something to do with wine.
Vincent Durrieu is the fifth generation of this family to work the domain, continuing with very traditional Burgundian methods. And it’s a noble tradition.
Jean Dauvissat Pere et Fils
There’s a new kid on the block. And it’s pretty exciting news for Elden Selections. Fabien Dauvissat, son of Jean (no, not that Jean Dauvissat) has made some radical changes in his father’s considerable Chablis domain.
Who dare defy Mouton- Rothschild? When their big-gun lawyers said they could not use the family name to sell wine, Laurent Mouton stood his ground.
Domaine Jean Fery
We first heard of the Domaine Jean Fery a few years back when we ran into Pascal Marchand shortly after his liberation from corporate winemaking.
Domaine Philippe Charmond
The village of Vergisson, perched on the flanks of the Roche de Vergisson and with the rock of Solutre as a backdrop, is one of the prettiest villages in the Maconnais.
Domaine Jean-Jacques Girard
Jean-Jacques Girard’s family was growing grapes in Savigny-lès-Beaune back in 1529. That, as the French say, is ‘formidable’ and would make the domain one of the oldest in Burgundy.
Chateau de Chamilly
The Chateau de Chamilly sits in a verdant hidden valley in the very north of the Cote Chalonnaise, 20 minutes south of Beaune. It was built in the 17th century, raised up on the foundations of a 14th century fortified farm.
We remember the exact day that we met Pascal Borgeot. It was January 28 1989. There’s a poster on our wall to mark the occasion. Not the meeting, but the day.
Domaine Pierre Naigeon
The Domaine Naigeon, though old by even Burgundy standards, remained fairly small until the present generation. Shortly after 1945 Pierre Naigeon gave his name to the domain that is now managed by his grandson, also named Pierre.
Of all the introductions to winemakers that we’ve had over the years, none was more fortuitous than the day we met Roger Capitain.
The Domaine Oudin came to be in the late 1980s when Jean-Claude and Christine Oudin left the stress of Paris life behind and settled near the bridge in Chichéeto raise their two daughters and to develop a small 5 acre vineyard they had inherited near Chablis.
Domaine Thierry Richoux
On slopes above the Yonne river valley, 15 km from Chablis, a handful of winemakers are cultivating a reputation for red Burgundy at the northernmost limit of possibility.
Domaine Albert Boillot
Raymond Boillot of Volnay is part of the greater Boillot family, and a cousin of the illustrious Henri Boillot of Domain Jean Boillot.
The Clos de la Perriere in Fixin, founded by the Cistercians in 1142, is a walled-in vineyard that the monks way back when knew made an exceptional wine.
Bernard Regnaudot arrived in Dezizes-les Maranges in 1996, but he is a third-generation vigneron.
Domaine Gilles Bouton
We met Gilles Bouton back in the days of our hotel-barge Le Papillon when we were cruising the inland waterways in search of the real Burgundy.
Domaine De Suremain
Eric De Suremain talks a lot about synergy. Synergy between where you come from and who you are.
Domaine William Nahan
Situated in a converted mill house at the foot of the Grand Cru vineyards and a few steps from the center of Chablis, the Domaine du Chardonnay is a joint effort of three Chablis winemakers.
The story of the Maison Marchand-Tawse in Burgundy begins with the extraordinary story of Pascal Marchand, the French Canadian boy wonder, who in 1985 at 22 years old, took the reins of the Clos des Epeneaux in Pommard.
Paul-Henri Thillardon is, at a very young age, a masterful winemaker. It’s got to be a gift, he has perfect pitch and his wines sing.
Champagne Pierre Brigandat
Bertrand Brigandat has known all along that he has what it takes to make great domain-bottled Champagne.
Domaine Marchand Freres
The Domaine Marchand Freres has been around since 1813 through seven generations, and for most of that time it was based in Morey-St. Denis.
Elden Hospices de Beaune
One of the dreams of any burgundy lover is to one day raise a paddle at the Hospice de Beaune Charity Wine Auction and buy a legend. We go each year and buy on behalf of our clients. We have great record of buying some of the best wines at the auction. Now you can participate with us, get closer to the famous auction and buy these wines by the case. That is, for as long as they last!
