Chateau Gloria 2017

 A case of 12 Bottles (750ML)

The Balance and Fruit of a Great Saint-Julien

A brand with a strong identity, Gloria is among the most emblematic unclassified Cru Medoc properties on the Left Bank of the Bordeaux region.

The unique creation of Henri Martin, the singularity of Chateau Gloria lies in its vineyard: 50 hectares made up of parcels acquired exclusively from Grands Crus Classes of 1855. Chateau Gloria brings together the greatest terroirs of Saint-Julien.

Though the 2017 vintage will be remembered by the episodes of frost that hit the vineyards of Bordeaux, the proximity of the Gironde estuary protected Chateau Gloria, ensuring a most promising vintage.

Managed in a way that respects the optimal state of ripeness of the fruit, the vineyard parcels have revealed fruit in perfect sanitary condition, achieving an ideal balance between sugar and acidity and a good concentration of polyphenols.

Consisting of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by 26% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot, the Chateau Gloria 2017 showcases the typical characteristics of the Medoc grape varieties. Fruity and balanced, the Gloria 2017 shows signs of a beautiful Saint-Julien.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Gloria is deep garnet-purple in color and scented of warm plums and blueberry pie with hints of potpourri, tilled soil and espresso. The palate is medium-bodied with just enough expressive fruit and a fine, approachable frame. The blend is currently 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot.
