Berliquet 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"A strong effort from Berliquet, the 2010 was fashioned from yields of 23 hectoliters per hectare by the managing consultant, Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. Composed of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers copious aromas of sweet kirsch liqueur, underbrush, plums and black cherries. This mineral-laced, deep, medium to full-bodied, moderately tannic, broad, savory St.-Emilion exhibits more power and depth than past vintages. ...90-93" WA 05/11 "Ruby-red. Spicy, refined aromas of red cherry, raspberry and flowers. Bright, pure and focused, this medium-bodied wine exhibits pristine red cherry and red berry flavors lifted by minerals and flowers. The very long, smooth finish features lingering strawberry and white pepper nuances hinting at cabernet franc and polished tannins....90-93" IWC 05/11
