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.
