Chateau Berliquet comprises a square, 10-hectare handkerchief of St Emilion vineyard. Its long history dates back to the 1740s, making it one of the appellation’s oldest vineyards. It is a Grand Cru Classe.

Until as recently as the 1970s, Chateau Berliquet's wine was made by the local co-operative. The quality was good but rather unexciting. Since 1978, the wine has been vinified and matured at the château and has improved beyond recognition. Chateau Berliquet has made a strong commitment to working sustainability. In addition to introducing environmentally responsible practices in the winery, they have recently planted hedges, grasses, walnut trees and introduced green corridors to increase biodiversity.

Tasting Notes

This is an engaging treat of plums, damson, cherry, blackcurrant and blackberries, all rounded off by lovely creamy notes. The wine shows a bright, deep ruby colour and a perfumed nose of ripe, red fruit as well as a hint of spice from oak-ageing. The palate is well balanced, with brambly fruit shining through.

Food Pairing

Pairs well with classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, and grilled dishes.

Grape Variety: 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Country: Saint Emilion, Bordeaux - France
