A balanced Saint-Julien wine exuding intense aromas

The producer

Created by Henri Martin, Château Gloria is one of the most iconic estates of the Saint-Julien appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux. The estate’s originality lies in the strength of its vineyard, meticulously built up by Henri Martin, following the purchase of plots from Grands Crus Classés in 1855.

The vineyard

Located in the Saint-Julien AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée), Château Gloria’s vineyard spreads over 50 hectares of vines which are planted on a soil composed of Günz gravel and a sandy-clay subsoil.

The vinification and ageing

The wine is aged in barrels (45% of which are new).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (60%)

Merlot (30%)

Petit Verdot (6%)

Cabernet Franc (4%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Gloria has a powerful bouquet with blackberry, boysenberry and cedar--forthright and demonstrative. The palate is structured and quite masculine, a light marine influence filtering through, but just missing a little complexity on the second half, where I would like to see more Cabernet expression. Perhaps this is one Saint Julien where I expected more. Tasted twice with consistent notes.
