The Balance and Fruit of a Great Saint-Julien

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

The unique creation of Henri Martin, the singularity of Château Gloria lies in its vineyard: 50 hectares made up of parcels acquired exclusively from Grands Crus Classés of 1855. Château 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 Château 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 Château Gloria 2017 showcases the typical characteristics of the Médoc grape varieties. Fruity and balanced, the Gloria 2017 shows signs of a beautiful Saint-Julien.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 Gloria is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of warm blackcurrants, baked blackberries and plums with cedar, earth and herbs hints. The palate is medium-bodied, juicy, soft and easy-breezy. The blend is 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 14 months in French oak, 40% new. About 65% of the production was produced as grand vin.
