Description
“This Chateau was created in the 1950`s by the late Henri Martin so does appear in the 1855 classification but is equal to many classified wines. The quality of Gloria has improved tremendously over the last few years and this is a top St Julien performer these days. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot with 45% new oak being used. Deep ruby with a purple hue at the rim. On the nose pure red fruits are very evident with hints of cedar and graphite too. Very spicy and peppery on the palate with bramble red fruit and clean, racy acidity. Cedary St Julien tannins give the wine grip, structure and freshness to produce a really gorgeous wine.” Sandhams Wines

    This is the best Gloria in years with aromas of blackberries, minerals, roses and spices. Full body, firm tannins and a long and beautiful finish. Fantastic center palate. Like a tight ball of silky thread. Seamless. Try drinking in 2020.

    The 2014 Gloria is a bold, powerful wine. Dark cherry, smoke, licorice, tobacco and underbrush effortlessly fill out its frame. Ample and richly textured, the 2014 offers remarkable depth, power and pure pedigree. Pomegranate, blood orange and iron add further complexity on the finish. This is a superb showing. Tasted twice.

    The 2014 Gloria is ample, rich and beautifully resonant, with more than enough fruit to fill out its broad-shouldered frame. Red currant, blood orange, smoke, white pepper and iron build to the deeply satisfying finish. The combination of extroverted fruit, tannin and saline-inflected minerality dazzles from the very first taste. What a gorgeous wine this is.
