We are delighted to offer one of our investment tips of the vintage, Château Berliquet 2019. This small, 10-hectare vineyard was acquired by the Chanel group in 2017 and is now the proud sibling of Château Canon, whose wines regularly appreciate in value and attain stratospheric critical ratings.
With the famed Thomas Duclos as consultant and the guidance of the Canon estate, Berliquet’s wines have made a quite considerable jump in quality, making the most of their old vines in clay and limestone soils sat atop the Saint-Emilion plateau.
In terms of value for money, Berliquet sits alongside Canon, La Gaffeliere and Valandraud on the Right Bank this year, offering investors and drinkers alike a wine that is increasingly in demand for under £34 a bottle, in bond.
We are offering cases of 12 bottles for £402 in bond, or cases of 6 in bond for £201 – really tremendous value at the end of the campaign and a must buy for any lovers of the wines of the Right Bank.

“Vibrant damson in colour. I love the deep creaminess that is evident from the first nose, with hints of cocoa and gunsmoke. There is more clay here than at Canon; about 50% of the vineyard has a clay layer over the limestone whereas at Canon it is closer to 10%, meaning Berliquet is less ethereal, more urgent and powerful, still with precision and feathery chalky tannins. They have restored the underground limestone cellars for barrel ageing. A yield of 45hl/ha. 45% new oak, for what is the 2nd full year of the Canon team working the vineyard.
