Château Gloria

Chteau Gloria

Ref: A034506

Cru Bourgeois St Julien

Gloria's 48 hectares (the first of which were acquired in 1942) have all come from the purchase of land from cru classé properties and this pedigree can clearly be seen in the wine today. This is a prodigious 2009 which is definitely of cru classé quality. Deep coloured with a spicy blackberry and plum nose and a very concentrated, deep-flavoured and silky textured palate with firm tannins coupled to a very attractive linear freshness giving the whole great length. Excellent. [Drink: 2015-2028]

Henri Martin, Gloria's owner and once Mayor of Saint Julien was one of Médoc's legendary figures. In 1956 he became President of the Interprofessional Committee of Bordeaux Wines. Beginning in the 1940's, Henri Martin assembled the vineyards of Château Gloria with parcels of land from such neighbouring vineyards as Léoville-Poyferré, Gruaud-Larose, Saint Pierre and Duhart-Milon. The property is now run and managed by his son-in-law, Jean-Louis Triaud.

The wine is fermented in stainless steel vats and spends 16 months in barrels producing round, generous, rich, long-lasting wines with cedary and spicy bouquets. The wine of Château Gloria shows well young, and also ages well.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais 2012
Vacqueyras Cuve Azalais 2012
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.


Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Deep coloured with a bouquet of ripe cherry fruit, this is a very approachable wine with the emphasis on ripeness and "crunchy" fruit with excellent balance.
