Critical Acclaim

"This stunning success from Berliquet is unquestionably a sleeper of the vintage. Made from 75% Merlot, 22% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is looked after by the impressive duo of Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. The dense blue/purple-colored 2011 offers a big, sweet kiss of blackberries, black cherries, licorice and crushed chalk. It possesses plenty of minerality as well as impressively concentrated fruit and a nicely extracted (but not over-extracted) personality. It will provide plenty of enjoyment for 15 or more years.
Barrel Sample: 90-93 Points"

"Bold, with lots of blueberry and bing cherry aromas and flavors and a creamy feel through the finish. Nicely imbedded acidity holds the flashy fruit together. Well done.
Barrel Sample: 89-92 Points"
92 Points

"The tannins are tough, although the fruit character is juicy in this wine. This makes for a well-structured, solid expression, with intense and crisp acidity at the end.
Barrel Sample: 89-91 Points"
91 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of violet and crystallized blackcurrant. Bright, fresh and suave in the mouth, with rich, nicely delineated flavors of red cherry, dark berries, minerals and flowers. Politely styled but quite long on the finish.
Range: 88-91"
