The 2009 Chateau Gloria displays a purple-tinted, deep red colour. This Saint-Julien reveals all the characteristics of great vintages with exemplary classicism. The nose exudes intense red fruits with some hints of jam as well as rich and complex scents of liquorice, catechu, and vanilla. The palate is defined by extraordinary balance and finesse. The attack is bold and sharp, followed by generously creamy and silky (cashmere-like) tannins: a sign of perfectly matured Cabernets Sauvignons. Everything in this offering is remarkable; the melting texture is incredible! Retro-olfaction confirms the pulp sensation from fruits and persistent length: A superior wine, solid and precise!
