2+2=5: Bordeaux 2021 In Bottle (Feb 2024)

The 2021 Berliquet has a very attractive nose: a mélange of red and black fruit, cedar, clementine and light crushed stone scents that coheres nicely in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very well-judged acidity, building gently in the mouth toward an elegant finish that does not overstay its welcome. This is a case of a wine proving that less is indeed more. Drink the 2021 over the next 15 years.
