The 2018 Chateau Gloria wine has a deep garnet purple colored. Aromatic black fruit, finely scented without excess sweetness or ripeness. This Chateau Gloria wine is full-bodied with a firm texture of ripe, grainy tannins. This St-Julien wine has a lively line cutting through the dense, savory layers, finishing on a lingering spicy note. A very classy St Julien wine that may warrant a higher score down the line.
This Chateau was created in the 1950’s by the late Henri Martin who was also the regisseur of Chateau Latour. Along with big brother Saint Pierre, the quality here has improved massively in the last few years and this is a top St Julien performer these days. Chateau Gloria is fast becoming one of the most exciting insider wines of the entire Bordeaux region, and that rare species of a non-classified St-Julien.
This 2018 Chateau Gloria wine has a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc. Usually St Julien’s best value.
