Château Gloria

Château Gloria

Those looking to buy the Classified Growths of Bordeaux without the price tag should look no further than Château Gloria. Unlike most Bordeaux estates with a rich history, Château Gloria is an infant by Bordeaux standards and was founded by Henri Martin, who came from a family involved in the wine trade. Around 1942, he made his first purchase – a 6-hectare plot of vines in Saint-Julien that previously belonged to Château Beychevelle. Over the next few decades, Henri patiently and painstakingly acquired parcels of vines and eventually cobbled together 44 hectares – most of which came from Classified Growth estates, into Château Gloria. Though Château Gloria is outside of the classification of 1855 (because it had not come into existence!), it is every inch a classic, true Saint-Julien. The wines are age-worthy and reliable with the character of each individual vintage showing through in the best ways possible.

Gloria 2016 (12x75cl)

Vinous (96)

The 2016 Gloria is one of the undisputed stars of this vintage. Rich, deep and explosive, the 2016 possesses tremendous intensity in all of its dimensions. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, menthol, licorice and dried rose petal all add complexity. In 2016 Gloria is a real head-turner. It should be a fabulous value as well. There is not much else to say.

While this wine has plenty of wood flavors, the fruit weight justifies it. It is rich with good spice and balanced acidity. It will develop relatively quickly, drink from 2023.
