Château Berliquet was founded in 1768, and is one of the oldest estates in Saint Émilion. Berliquet was one of the first Saint Émilion estates to sell their wine under their own name (as early as 1784, when most other wines were just called “Saint Émilion”). In July 2017 Berliquet was acquired by the Wertheimer brothers of the Chanel Group (already the owners of neighbouring vineyard Canon, as well as Rauzan-Ségla in Margaux). The 9 ha vineyard is 70% Merlot. The vines here are old, with an impressive average vine age of about 40 years. The vineyard is one large, single block of vines. The terroir is clay, chalk and limestone soils.

"Very soft and polished with beautiful tannins that are poised and beautiful. It’s medium-to full-bodied and gorgeously proportioned. Ready for even more polishing." 95-96 pts, James Suckling

"The 2020 Berliquet is composed of 69% Merlot and 31% Cabernet Franc, weighing in at 14.5% alcohol. It is aging in French oak barrels, 50% new. Deep purple-black colored, it trots casually out of the glass with effortlessly flamboyant scents of stewed black cherries, warm plums and baked blackberries, plus hints of chocolate mint, violets and licorice with a touch of fertile loam. The medium to full-bodied palate is very tightly wound with layers of ripe black fruits and earthy accents, framed by finely grained tannins and tons of freshness, finishing long and fragrant." 94-96 pts, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, WA

"Notes of iron, toasty oak, violets, and ample red and blue fruits emerge from the 2020 Château Berliquet, a medium to full-bodied, gorgeously balanced and textured Saint-Emilion based on 69% Merlot and 31% Cabernet Franc. It has a solid kick of background oak, but the fruit is incredibly pure and it has a great mid-palate and outstanding length. Still aging in 50% new French oak, it should benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 15 years or more in cold cellars." 92-94 pts, Jeb Dunnuck
