A flattering Saint-Julien red wine on the palate

Chateau Gloria is a Classified Growth from the vineyards of Saint-Julien. It is a blend of 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. The superior terroir, the manual harvesting and the vinification allow the estate to offer a powerful and fruity wine with a silky texture while following tradition at the same time.

At tasting, the wine has a beautiful, bright, intense red color. The nose offers fresh and ripe fruity aromas with notes of spice, pepper and coffee. On the palate, the wine is flattering and fleshy with extreme flexibility and rich in fruit that offers a lengthy finish. This Chateau Gloria 2012 is ultimately full of energy.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2012 is a successful effort once again from Château Gloria, a property that has been on a major qualitative roll for decades. Dense ruby/purple in color, it has sweet, juicy, blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, no real evidence of any oak, but a fleshy, open-knit, meaty mouthfeel. Excellent purity, low acidity and ripe tannin all characterize this beautiful wine, which should drink well for 12-15 years. Another major sleeper of the vintage.
