A smooth and velvety Saint-Julien red wine

As a Cru bourgeois-produced wine in the Saint-Julien appellation on a total area of 50 hectares, the Chateau Gloria boasts a blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% of Petit Verdot.

At tasting, the Chateau Gloria 1996 shows a clear, bright color. The nose reveals elegance and complexity with pine, flower and vanilla scents. On the palate, the wine has a lovely balance. The tannins are well-structured offering boldness, roundness and silkiness while the finish is beautifully long. A smooth and velvety wine.

Parker : 87-88 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 1995 and 1996 are two of the finest Glorias produced over recent vintages. Both the 1996 and 1995 are uncommonly hedonistic, plump, and precociously-styled wines. Low in acidity, rich in cedary, black currant fruit, medium-bodied, and lush, these two wines will provide delicious drinking young, yet both will age for 10-15 years. The 1995 is lower in acidity, and may not possess quite the density and power of the 1996, but readers looking for high class claret with immediate appeal would be foolish to pass it by. Both wines are sleepers of the vintage.
