Tasting Note:

Produced from 69% Merlot and 31% Cabernet Franc, the 2020 Berliquet is the third vintage made by the team from Château Canon. Nicolas Audebert feels that it’s beginning to take shape and develop its identity. Initially, the nose opens with very blue fruit; blueberries and sweet raspberries with some tale-tell limestone minerality. The palate is packed with chewy black fruits and liquorice. There’s some verve and a nice texture to the fruit, although it does seem a touch dry and overtly mineral on the finish.

"A slightly cooler terroir than its sibling estate Château Canon, a little more clay-based which gives weight, depth and power while also being austere right now, with grippy tannins and a bite of blood orange. Great stuff, can start drinking this in five to six years to allow the structure to soften while keeping the appeal of the wild cherry and blackberry fruits. 50% new oak for 16 months. Drinking Window 2028 - 2042." 93/100 - Jane Anson, Decanter.com
