    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Château Berliquet, Grand Cru Classé, St Emilion, 2017

    After many years being tended by Nicolas Thienpont, Berliquet is now being managed by another Nicolas, Monsieur Audebert of Canon and Rauzan Segla fame. The Wertheimer family recently purchased this superb clay/limestone plot between Canon and Belair Monange. The 2017 is the new team's first foray with this terroir and they opted for a cautious approach to picking and vinifications. The result is very impressive, although one senses this is very much a work in progress. Vivid crimson fruit, pure tayberry interwoven with minerals and liquorice. The palate is intense, vibrant and flavoursome with a real sense of its limestone terroir. Definitely one to watch!

    The 2023 Berliquet was picked 23 September to October 5 at 45hL/ha, matured in 34% new oak plus 10 amphorae. Initially, the nose is quite backward and doesn't want to play. Give it a few swirls and it opens to reveal black cherries, blackcurrant and a distant tang of oyster shell emanating from limestone soils. The palate is medium-bodied with a very harmonious entry. Finely weighted, tensile and slightly savory in style, this is very elegant, finishing with citrus-like freshness. Berliquet has definitely been in the ascendant in recent vintages, and this is another to add.
