Reviews for 2009 Berliquet Bordeaux Blend

JS 94
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Great aromas of crushed blackberries and blueberries follow through to a full body with super silky tannins and a long long finish. An absolute joy to taste. Best ever from here? Try in 2016.

Lively nose offers cassis minerals licorice and a note of cherry-almond. Broad and large-scaled for this Saint-Emilion with sweet concentrated cassis black cherry and soil flavors joined on the back by a smoky quality. The classically dry long finish features serious building tannins noteworthy energy and excellent punch. I haven't tasted a stronger young wine from this property in recent memory.

The wine displays oodles of strawberry jam intermixed with kirsch dusty loamy soil notes garrigue spice box and vanillin. It is full-bodied opulent very flamboyant and showy with a hint of chalky minerality to add complexity and precision. It should drink well for up to 15 or more years. Showing far better than it did from barrel this wine comes from a beautiful southwest-facing hillside slope near Angelus. With the 2009 Berliquet has turned out one of their best wines in many a year. Yields were only 21.5 hectoliters per hectare and the wine is a final blend of 73% Merlot 25% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon that tipped the scales at 14% natural alcohol under the guidance of Stephane Derenoncourt.

This cuts a broad and creamy path with lush blueberry fig and plum fruit all rolled together backed by warm cocoa and anise notes. Toasty grip supports the finish but there's enough exotic fruit here to soak that up so this should give the hedonist crowd something to enjoy with moderate cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2022. 1665 cases made.

Barely opaque at the core this wine shows effusive scents of fresh earth and dark fruits. Richer on the palate than the nose indicates broad blackberry flavors fan out yet avoid overripe qualities. Notable tannins mix... Barely opaque at the core this wine shows effusive scents of fresh earth and dark fruits. Richer on the palate than the nose indicates broad blackberry flavors fan out yet avoid overripe qualities. Notable tannins mix with chocolate dust to form a firm spine to the finish. A fairly elegant interpretation that should be consumed over the next 15 years.
