Here is a wine with great pedigree near Ausone. Full body, yet fast and agile. The finish lasts for minutes. You see the chalky soil in the wine.
There has been a renewed interest in this property over the past few months because it has just been bought by Château Canon, and in 2015 you can clearly see the potential. It displays smoked and grilled edges, and holds the palate firmly in place while it glides the vibrant red fruit along towards a menthol finish. Nicolas Thienpont has managed the property since 2008, although I assume this will end following the sale. Drinking Window 2023 - 2038. (JA)
The 2015 Berliquet has turned out beautifully. Sumptuous and inviting, it possesses remarkable depth and fruit intensity. Super-ripe red cherry, raspberry, wild flowers and mint all develop in this gracious, midweight Saint-Émilion. (AG)
This has some heft, with dark currant, fig and blackberry confiture flavors liberally inlaid with graphite, singed mesquite and singed iron notes. Shows a grippy feel through the finish, but the fruit keeps pace, with the iron element lingering longest in the end. Best from 2022 through 2032. (JM)
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Berliquet is a bit closed on the nose, with notions of baked plums and black soil with hints of fungi and bay leaves. The medium to full-bodied palate is a bit hollow with firm, chewy tannins and an herbal lift on the finish. (LPB)
