He obtained for the time (1784) a record of the sale price of his wine (245 pounds). In 1918 he was acquitted by the Count de Carles. This family known by Vital Carles (14th century), has owned many of the most prestigious wines of Saint-Emilion. Since 2017, Château Berliquet belongs to Chanel, already involved in Bordeaux vineyards for more than twenty years in Château Canon, but also Château Rauzan-Ségla, 2nd Grand Cru Classé in Margaux.
