Winemakers Note

Château Berliquet, a hanging garden Château Berliquet, Grand Cru Classé owned by CHANEL since 2017, is located on the heights of Saint-Emilion. Here, it is the landscape that catches the eye. As a true haven of greenery, Berliquet's garden is an open-air cabinet of curiosities where vines and plant species find their balance. Plants and vines thrive and teach the winegrower about the terroir of this hanging garden. Unchanged for nearly 200 years, the 10ha large vineyard plunges towards the Dordogne. From the limestone plateau to the bottom of the hill, the sections of soils of different compositions can clearly be seen. At the top, the limestone pavement, and then, moving further down, more clay is present. At Berliquet, a lot of work is done by hand or using animal traction, with respect for living things and for the landscape. Here, the Merlots and Cabernet Francs are rooted and pampered. The wine of Berliquet reflects this very special atmosphere. It expresses the tension of the limestone and the power of the clays. There is a soul to talk about and to share, there is a wine of elegance and of character. Château Berliquet reveals its personality, airy like that of its neighbour Château Canon, but also earthy, with its own clay imprint Tasting notes 2021 is a rich, generous and yet precisely-delineated vintage. The first nose is predominantly floral, with added complexity courtesy of the intense geranium notes, right down to the earthy roots. They soon make way for crushed red fruit aromas, with blackberry and cherry front and centre, charming the palate with their sheer generosity. The depth of character drawn from the clay-rich soils is tempered by a pin-sharp sense of tension and finesse. A high-wire balancing act, showcasing this vintage at its best. The story of 2021 vintage
