Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, September 2020,
    Score: 17/17.5

    Radiant summer hedgerow fruits and a touch of smoky graphite. In the palate the immediate attack comes from the succulent merlot fruit in the blend (77%). This wine is so full of life and energy and one is struck by its harmony and balance. The tannins have a sandy, granular texture, reflective of the wonderful, ripe Cabernet Franc. Textured and gloriously long, this really is a beauty true to its St Emilion origins. A reminder of why the wines from this beautiful commune are some of the most sought after in the world.

    Score: 93

    Vibrant damson in colour. I love the deep creaminess that is evident from the first nose, with hints of cocoa and gunsmoke. There is more clay here than at Canon; about 50% of the vineyard has a clay layer over the limestone whereas at Canon it is closer to 10%, meaning Berliquet is less ethereal, more urgent and powerful, still with precision and feathery chalky tannins. They have restored the underground limestone cellars for barrel ageing. A yield of 45hl/ha. 45% new oak, for what is the 2nd full year of the Canon team working the vineyard.

Château Berliquet

This overlooked château was purchased by the Wertheimer brothers of Chanel in August 2017, who also own neighbouring Ch Canon as well as Margaux property Ch Rauzan Ségla. The team at Ch Canon are undertaking major changes in the vineyard and cellar, and this 10 hectare estate’s future looks bright.

Region

St Emilion

South of Pomerol lies the medieval, perched village of St Emilion. Surrounding St Emilion are vines that produce round, rich and often hedonistic wines. Despite a myriad of soil types, two main ones dominate - the gravelly, limestone slopes that delve down to the valley from the plateau and the valley itself which is comprised of limestone, gravel, clay and sand. Despite St Emilion's popularity today, it was not until the 1980s to early 1990s that attention was brought to this region. Robert Parker, the famous wine critic, began reviewing their Merlot-dominated wines and giving them hefty scores. The rest is history as they say. Similar to the Médoc, there is a classification system in place which dates from 1955 and outlines several levels of quality. These include its regional appellation of St Emilion, St Emilion Grand Cru, St Emilion Grand Cru Classé and St Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classé, which is further divided into "A" (Ausone and Cheval Blanc) and "B" (including Angélus, Canon, Figeac and a handful of others). To ensure better accuracy, the classification is redone every 10 years enabling certain châteaux to be upgraded or downgraded depending on on the quality of their more recent vintages.
