Tasting Note:

Under the management of Nicolas Audebert and Thomas Duclos, this direct neighbour of Canon and Beausejour is improving at pace. Formed of three shelved parcels: pure limestone soil at the top, deep clay in the middle and mostly eroded clay-limestone sand at the bottom; one feels the density of the clay in the mid-palate. This is a broad wine full of ferrous, earthy notes and dried fruits framed by more structured tannins. There's lots of potential here, but for us it lacked the lift and energy of the magnificent Canon. 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc.

“The 2022 Berliquet is brilliant, bursting with aromas of plums, wild berries and lilac, followed by a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and vibrant palate that's deep and mineral. It's likely to be another of the vintage's more attractive en primeur proportions. This estate just goes from strength to strength—and that's before its new winery has been constructed! One of the most significant changes has been opting to retain higher canopies, which means that the fruiting zone of rows planted along the slope are now shaded, preserving freshness.” 94-95 points - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

“Lots of dark and crushed stones with blackberries and black olives. Dark earth. Full-bodied and more concentrated with very intense fruit and chewy tannins. Velvety and slightly rough, but all there.” 93-94 points - James Suckling,

“Dark damson colour, beautiful sense of upliflt and freshness, with mint leaf, sage, wild rosemary, cassis fruits. Slate texture to the wine here, feels carved out and crafted, with edges of austerity that constrict the cassis and raspberry fruit. 44% new oak, 8 amphoras (around 10% of overall), the rest in one year old barrel, 45hl/h yield. Great stuff” 94 points - Jane Anson,
