Berliquet 2004 1.5L

Region: Bordeaux

Appellation: Saint-Émilion



Château Berliquet is a Grand Cru Classé, founded in 1768, it is one of the oldest estates in the region. It was also one of the first estates in Bordeaux to sell wine under its own name and not just as generic Saint-Émilion. The estate’s 7.5 hectares (18.5 acres) are mostly planted to Merlot with approximately 70 percent. The remaining is Cabernet Franc. The first two grape varieties are sited on the western hillside which gently slopes towards the Dordogne. The effect of the natural limestone here is evident in the racy character of the wines. The Premier Grand Cru Classé vineyard of Château Canon and the distinct parcel used for (its second wine) Croix Canon both border Château Berliquet. They now share the same owner, Maison Chanel of fashion fame. The group purchased Berliquet in 2017.
