"Bright fruit on the nose of cherries, currants and flowers. Full body, round and silky tannins and a long and flavorful finish. The new wood comes out at the end suggesting a year or two will put it all together. Third wine of Gloria. Drink in 2020."-James Suckling, 91 points!
Chateau Gloria has created Le Bordeaux de Gloria, its third label wine. This vintage is 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Merlot. Aged in French oak barrels for 8 months. Chateau Gloria is a classic Saint-Julien, created by Henri Martin and the only one of its kind as this 50-hectare vineyard was put together piece-by-piece over a number of years through the purchase of plots exclusively from grands crus classified in 1855. It is a vineyard covering 50 hectares, with an average vine age of 40 years, spread across three areas, in the middle of Beychevelle and then in the west and the north of the appellation (bordering Pauillac) on soil made up of Gunzian gravel covering a layer of clay and sand.
Enjoy Bordeaux de Gloria over the next 8-10 years with beef stew, grilled steak, rich vegetarian dishes, and aged cheeses.
