Well, here it is the first weekend December and a finish to another year is upon us. I have opened the 2010 Château Berliquet to start the last month of the year off right. The blend to this Right Bank Bordeaux is 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.

On the nose there is luscious black fruit, black cherry, sweet black plum, blackberry, black currant, herbal notes, clove and sweet silky chocolate.

The palate reveals the same luscious black fruit, black cherry, blackberry, black currant, black plum, green bell pepper, clove and a soft minerality.

This wine is well balanced and well structured with medium to full bodied with fine medium + acidity, medium + smooth firm drying tannin and the finish is long with continued dark fruit to the end. Have a great weekend and a safe and to 2017. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Solid though the nose would make me think this wine was much older than 10 years.

Good value for 2012. Quite fruity and floral on the nose. Soft texture with a bit of soft cocoa notes. Good!

In between angelus and Ausone. Can't beat that terroir!

Magnum. Merlot dominant. Gravelly texture. Impressive. New world style.

Dark ruby brown color and full bouquet - plum, strawberry and currant - very fragrant. Soft tannins (it's a 2004!!) and finishes nicely - so easily drinkable and making me wish the bottle was larger.
