Chateau Gloria, Saint- Julien

65.40

Chateau Gloria is a lighter, elegant style of Saint Julien that is often ready to drink within a few years of release. Yet don’t let that fool you. The wine can also age quite well. The 2009 was the best wine made at this Medoc estate I have ever tasted until the 2010 Gloria was produced until the 2014 was produced, which might be even better! Chateau Gloria is popular Bordeaux wine with consumers for its early drinkability, charming character and fair prices. It’s a contender for the best Bordeaux value wine from the St. Julien appellation.

The nose is very intensive with flavors of red berries, licorice, cigar box and wet underdrush. The palate is amazing with aromas of black and red currants, cassis, cherries, wood, tobacco, spices and herbal notes with fine grainy tannins. Great balance, structure, rich, fruity and lingering mouthfeel and long finish. A wonderful (unclassified) BDX with the right age now to show its great complexity and surely also in the next years.
