The 2015 Berliquet exudes richness and ripeness. Inky, unctuous and super-concentrated, the Berliquet is laced with the essence of crème de cassis, mocha, sweet oak, spices and vanilla. Forward and undeniably racy, the 2015 captures the flamboyance of the vintage in spades. This is a distinctly ripe style. The blend is 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. Tasted two times.

The 2015 Berliquet is a blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc picked between 22 September and 9 October, 8-9 October respectively at 35 hl/ha. It has a tight, linear nose at first, precise but tightly-coiled with black cherry and bilberry fruit, a touch of slate in the background. The palate is very well balanced with elegant tannin, nicely pitched acidity, nothing ambitious or outrageous, an almost "courtly" Saint Emilion with grace and style. It should turn into a delicious wine, perhaps one more approachable than others. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032

Here is a wine with great pedigree near Ausone. Full body, yet fast and agile. The finish lasts for minutes. You see the chalky soil in the wine. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Delightfully pure, with great drive, offering a gorgeous beam of cassis, damson plum and raspberry coulis flavors. Though not shy on depth, this has a pretty iron note throughout and a long, floral-edged finish. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine. Under Nicolas Thienpont's direction since 2008. Picked relatively early from 22 September (for south-facing young vines) until 9 October. 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc. Mild, well-behaved nose. Fine, polished tannins but without massive depth or drama. Reminds me a little of the Église-Clinet 2015. Slightly sandpapery on the finish.

Bright and fragrant with dark fruit and chocolate notes. Firm, lifted and long with a chalky note. Good line and tension. Smooth texture and tannins. Limestone grip and freshness on the finish. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2022-2035
