Château
Berliquet

Saint-Émilion Grand Cru
Grand Cru Classé
Viscount Patrick de Lesquen
Berliquet is one of the oldest vineyards in Saint-Émilion and appears on Belleyme’s map dating back to 1768. In his 1828 classification, Paguierre lists Berliquet as one of the appellation’s five first growths.

Belonging to the de Sèze, and then the Pérès families, it was acquired in 1918 by Count de Carles, the current owner’s grandfather.
Château Berliquet was accorded its rightful place among the greatest wines of Saint-Émilion in the 1986 classification.

The estate is located on the Magdelaine plateau, a few hundred metres from the town of Saint-Émilion. The vines have south and
southwest-facing sun exposure and border on several
Premiers Grands Crus Classés. The wine is aged in magnificent underground cellars hewn out of solid rock.

The arrival of Nicolas Thienpont and Stéphane Derenoncourt in July 2008 made it possible to define the needs of each vineyard plot and achieve optimum ripeness to reflect the full elegance of the terroir.
