The 2017 Gloria is deep garnet-purple in color and scented of warm plums and blueberry pie with hints of potpourri, tilled soil and espresso. The palate is medium-bodied with just enough expressive fruit and a fine, approachable frame. The blend is currently 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot.

Dark and winey in profile, with steeped plum, blackberry and black currant fruit that is youthfully coiled up, laced with bramble, apple wood and anise notes. Offers a compact finish but the energy is there. Let this unwind in the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2034. 20,475 cases made.

A tight and focused red with currants, dark berries and hints of mushrooms. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a juicy finish.

Mid crimson. Lifted cassis and cassis leaf. A little austere but very fresh and with fine-line purity. Dry, dark-chocolate finish that leaves your mouth feeling clean.

Vin juteux, tactile, fruité, élégant et aérien, finale longue.

The 2017 Gloria is superb. At once deep and fleshy, but also beautifully delineated, the 2017 is incredibly satisfying. Succulent red and blue fruit, cedar, tobacco, anise and leather are some of the many notes that develop in the glass in an explosive, potent Saint-Julien that delivers the goods, and then some. Best of all, Gloria remains one of the most compelling values in all of Bordeaux. Don't miss it. Tasted three times.

From another estate that’s on an upward trajectory, the 2017 Château Gloria boasts a deep ruby/purple color as well as a sensational bouquet of sweet crème de cassis, crushed violets, spicy oak, and graphite. It’s medium-bodied, has a rounded, opulent texture, ripe tannin, and more mid-palate density and depth than most in the vintage. It’s already hard to resist yet should cruise for 12-15 years. The blend is 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and the rest Cabernet Franc, all brought up in 40% new wood.

Description

Created by Henri Martin, unique since the 50 hectare vineyard of Château Gloria was formed piece by piece over several years by purchasing plots derived exclusively from Grands Crus in 1855. The origin of the soils, the attention to culture and vinification, explain its quality recognized worldwide. Vineyard of 50 hectares, with an average age of 40 spread over three areas, the center of Beychevelle, west and north of the appellation (neighboring Pauillac) on a soil composed of serious original gunzienne overlying a sandy clay layer.


Château Gloria is unique

Unique because this vineyard was built piece by piece over several years, by purchasing parcels exclusively from Grands Crus classified in 1855 of Saint-Julien. The origin of the terroirs, the care given to the culture and the vinification, explain its quality globally recognized.


An aged vineyard worthy of a Cru-Classé

Vineyard of 50 hectares, with an average age of 40 years spread over three zones, in the center of Beychevelle, in the west and north of the appellation (bordering Pauillac) on a soil composed of gravels of gunzian origin covering a clay-sandy layer.

The Château Gloria wine reflects this exceptional terroir, it is an example of balance, finesse, and richness in this price range.


Ultra-modern cellars

vines are 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot. After hand picking, the grapes are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks in the traditional way to produce exceptional wines, and age. The wine is aged in the suite, for 14 months, renewed at 40% on average every year. Like its big brother, the Château Saint-Pierre, he shares outstanding changes in recent years (especially 2009/2010/2011).

Saint-Julien

The A.O.C Saint-Julien (968 hectares) was formalized in 1936. Located between Pauillac and Margaux both geographically and in style, it is one of the smallest Medoc appellation but the most consistent in quality. 18 active producers including 11 Classified Growths.
The appellation extends over 4.8 kilometers long by 3.2 kilometers wide and offers wines whose tannins have an incomparable finesse. What characterizes Saint-Julien is the terroir and the micro-climate. The terroir is a subtle blend between the contributions of stony alluvium from the Garonne and those from the Dordogne. The contributions therefore from the Pyrenees and the Massif Central. You should know that this agglomeration of rocks slowly broken then spread over the millennia is an exceptional case.
