    The 2016 Berliquet performs just as I expected given its showing out of barrel. The bouquet is attractive if not a showstopper, featuring blackberry, cigar humidor and sage and thyme aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with good intensity and greater depth and grip than the Berliquets of old. The saline finish beckons you back for another sip. Enjoy this Saint-Émilion over the next decade or two. (1/24/2019)

    Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Berliquet is a little mute to begin, opening out to expressive kirsch, black plums and black cherry compote scents plus nuances of unsmoked cigars and dried herbs. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has fantastic intensity and energy, with a firm frame of ripe, grainy tannins and a lively lift to the mineral-laced finish. (11/30/2018)

    Packed with spice, blackberry and black plum, this is generous, yet balanced by refined acidity and dense tannins that will give it a chance to age over the medium term. It is an apt and attractive reflection of the vintage. (4/19/2017)

  • 93 James Suckling

    Love the combination of dark berries, sweet tobacco and wet earth here. Full-bodied, juicy and chewy with lots of tannins, solid fruit concentration and a medium finish. A blend of 75 per cent merlot and 25 per cent cabernet franc. Try in 2023. (2/4/2019)

    From a site near Canon, just down from Beau-Séjour Bécot, the 2016 Château Berliquet is a plump, rounded, medium-bodied Saint-Emilion with classic red and black cherry fruits, hints of leafy herbs and earth, and a charming, balanced feel that’s very much in the style of the 2016 vintage.(3/1/2019)

    This is a really powerful red with fantastic density and richness. Silky and chewy tannins. Lots of chalky, crushed limestone character. Impressive. (4/5/2017)
