JEAN-CLAUDE RATEAU MIXED CASE
An Elden Exclusive in Two Great Vintages
I've known Jean-Claude Rateau since we were both just kids, and I watched the early years of his work in biodynamic winemaking here in Burgundy. At the time, he was the only one. Everyone at the time thought he was nuts. But he eventually became the mentor and guru of an entire generation. Everybody is organic now!
I recently read a NY Times article about 7 undiscovered Burgundy producers that wine aficionados should know about. Number 7 was Jean-Claude, last in the list because the writer said that while his wines are extraordinary, they are extremely difficult to find in the US.
That's because there is only one place you can find them in the US: Elden Selections.
So for you, it's not difficult at all! You already know what burgundywine.com offers. We have presented Jean-Claude's wines since our paper-copy newsletter days back in the 90s.
And he just gets better and better.
He says that it's because his vines are ever-healthier due to the biodynamic care they receive. But we want you to be the judge. And there is not a better moment for you to try Jean-Claude's wines.
We have just received a shipment of his 2019s in our US cellars.
And 2019 in Red Burgundy is not just the buzz of the moment, it will prove to be one of the classic vintages of the century.
Add to this that we have a small amount of his 2018s still in the cellar, and you have a mixed case of Rateau Beaune 1er Cru that would make a NY Times reviewer envious.
Mixed 12 bottle case, 3 bottles of each of PLUS includes Ground Shipping.
