First off, the vineyards of Château Berliquet are in a great location, situated next to Magdelaine and Canon. Second, the 1997 vintage was quite signifcant here, since that is when the owners hired Patrick Valette of Château Pavie to consult and oversee winemaking.
The nose is expressive with spice and earth aromas and dried fruit at the back. The palate is smooth, with integrated acidity and tannins, spice, dried fruit and some mushroom/earthy flavors. The finish is long, dominated by spice. The wine is integrated, ready to drink and only $34.99. If you want to try a Bordeaux that is drinking at its peak for a great price, this is the wine.
