Chateau Berliquet, Grand Cru Classe, Saint-Emilion, Bordeaux, France, 2004

A superb Grand Cru Classe red wine from Frances most prestigious wine region.

All those who have walked the cobblestones of the city of Saint-Emilion and its wine lands have savoured the magic of this place. Château Berliquet, Grand Cru Classé, is a nugget at the heart of this historic vineyard. Planted on 10 hectares, Merlot and Cabernet Franc overhang the western hillside of Saint-Emilion and gently bend towards the Dordogne. The structural imprint of the limestone plateau is evident here and its potential to produce wines that are both racy, tense and elegant is undeniable. The estate adjoins the vineyard of Château Canon, 1st Grand Cru Classé and since 2017 they share the same owner ‘Chanel’. They have been involved in Bordeaux vineyards for over twenty years in Château Canon, but also Château Rauzan-Ségla, 2nd Grand Cru Classé in Margaux. The owners ambition is to produce fine wines that are the best reflection of the amazing terroir.

Tasting Notes:

Ruby red, aromas of berries, flowers and a touch of minerality. Attractively sweet and juicy with black plums, violet, liquorice, minerals and spicy oak flavours, silky tannins followed by a refined finish.
