  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    The 2022 Berliquet was picked from 29 August to 14 September and matured in 44% new oak. The wood is a little more prominent on the nose than the Canon, with black cherries, bilberry and light oyster shell scents. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins. This is a juicy Berliquet that probably belies the structure underneath. There's more red fruit toward the finish, with a touch of pepper on the aftertaste. Drink 2030-2055

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    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.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 91-93

    The 2022 Berliquet is super-concentrated, dark and ripe, but also without the forbidding tannins of the past. Succulent plum fruit, mocha, licorice and dried herbs are some of the many notes that grace this gorgeous Saint-Émilion. It will be interesting to see where the 2022 ends up post élevage. Today it is full-bodied and quite opulent. Tasted four times.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    Winemaker Nicolas Audebert has proved the perfect custodian of this diamond of a vineyard acquired by the Chanel group in 2017. It combines three different geological formations and has its own personality, so different to lauded neighbour, Canon. The 2022 represents a culmination of all his work, dark cherry and blueberry, with cedar and freshly picked herbs. A tighter and more tense style than the Canon, with a chalky, clay bite, this is bold without being ostentatious, with a fine, classy persistence.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 93-94

    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.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2023, Score: 17

    Very deep crimson. Rich, sweet and burly compared with the Canon but still with purity. Such polish! Clean and fresh. Sleekissimo. Drink 2030 – 2045

  • Jane Anson, April 2023, Score: 94

    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.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    Candied cherries, tapenade, violets, and floral notes all emerge from the 2022 Château Berliquet, a medium to full-bodied, seamless Saint-Emilion that brings plenty of ripeness while staying nicely balanced, light on its feet, and elegant. Based on 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Franc, from yields of 31.2 hectoliter per hectare, it will spend 16 months in 44% new French oak, with a portion of the blend aged in amphora. This isn't the most powerful or opulent wine in the vintage, but it's as seamless and graceful as they come.

  • Jancis Robinson, April 2023, Score: 17

    Poised and elegant on the nose. Red fruit to the fore. Palate juicy but refined. Tannins finely honed. Length and persistence on the finish. Continues its upward curve. (James Lawther MW). 14.5%. Drink 2028 – 2040

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 18.5+

    While tasting this wine, it feels like there is a cube of limestone in my glass, akin to a cube of ice in a perfectly made G’n’T, and this makes it a white-knuckle experience. This is Berliquet’s finest moment of late, with admirable balance along a long, fine, even palate. Medium-weight, stylish and honed, this is a profoundly luxurious wine with epic tension and wonderful length. This is a level above anything I have previously tasted at this property, and it feels holistic, elegant and calm. The absence of any ostentatious fruit might not appeal to all comers, but terroir acolytes and those who seek meticulous detail will fall at Berliquet’s feet and soak up the incredible precision found here.


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.


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.
