2010 Château Gloria



94Vinous / IWC

...very attractive and quite intense bouquet with a surfeit of blackberry and wild strawberry scents, cedar and light seaweed coming through with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with supple but firm tannins framing the pure blackberry and bilberry fruit, laced with black pepper and clove. Very complex, very focused and very precise on the finish...

93The Wine Advocate

...notions of cedar, sandalwood and dusty earth with a core of black cherry compote and black berry pie plus wafts of tapenade, truffles and charcoal. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a solid frame of firm, grainy tannins and lively acid with emboldened flavors and an earth-laced finish.

90Wine Spectator

Juicy and direct, with a relatively friendly feel to the plum, blackberry and blueberry fruit, all coated with a ganache note that hangs through the finish.

90-91James Suckling

...velvety in texture. Full body, with plenty of fruit and bright acidity. Intense and interesting.

16Jancis Robinson

Sweet, ripe, dark...pruney on the nose. Charry too.


Château Gloria

Château Gloria is a 118-acre estate in St.- Julien, Bordeaux. The estate is “unclassified” because it was founded after the 1855 official classification of Bordeaux estates. The estate was established in 1942 by Henri Martin, a native of the area and a one-time mayor of St.-Julien, who in his 40s purchased 15 acres of vineyards. Martin bought more property over the years, and building. He died in 1982 but Château Gloria is now run by his son-in-law, Jean-Louis Triad. Before his death Martin also bought Château St.-Pierre. Vineyards are planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, and 5% each Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. About 200,000 bottles are produced annually. The second wine is Château Peymartin. Robert M. Parker Jr. calls Gloria’s wines “always soundly made and consistently reliable.”


France, Bordeaux, St.-Julien

Saint-Julien is the smallest of the four main Médoc appellations with 2,175 acres of vineyards. It is just south of Pauillac on the left bank of the Gironde, and although it has no First Growth châteaux, its 11 Classified Growth estates are widely admired. Robert M. Parker Jr. has written that winemaking in Saint-Julien from all classifications “is consistently both distinctive and brilliant.” He adds it is Médoc’s “most underrated commune.” The best-known estates are Léoville Las Cases, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Léoville Poyferré, Léoville Barton and Gruaud Larose, and most of those have riverside estates. The soil in this appellation is gravelly with clay. Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape grown, and it is blended with Cabernet Franc, Merlot and sometimes small amounts of Petit Verdot.
