Jean-Claude Rateau : biodynamic Beaune and Beaune 1ers crus

jean-claude-rateau-bourgogne-beauneJean-Claude Rateau produces fine Burgundy wines in Beaune and Beaune Premier Cru appellations on clay-limestone soils. Traditional grape varieties are planted : Chardonnay for the whites and Pinot Noir for the reds.

Jean-Claude Rateau comes from a winemakers family. His paternal grandfather, Lucien Rateau was a cellar worker and produced white and red Cote de Beaune. His maternal grandfather produced a Beaune village with great potential for ageing. His father cultivated and vinified plots of Bressandes Prevolles and Reversees. Jean-Claude has therefore been immersed in the wine world since his childhood.

After studying at the Wine Highschool, he undertook a "Tour de France" to visit winemakers and gain experience. He started his own business in 1979 with 2 hectares of family vines. Very close to his terroir and very concerned with the environment, a pioneer for the time, he made the choice of biodynamics. According to him, living organisms are essential to the vine.

Like the Trapet, Jean Claude and his wife are both winemakers, one in Burgundy, the other in Alsace. Indeed, his wife Sylvie Spielmann also produces biodynamic wines in Alsace.
