Product Description

Attractive dark and dense color. The expressive nose displays a subtle blend of black fruits(Morello Cherry, Black Currant) with a roasted touch (notes of toast and vanilla). On the palate, the wine is wide and fleshy, with a nice hint of fruit enhanced by elegant woody notes and pleasant tannins A relatively young estate, Château Gloria was founded and assembled by Monsieur Henri Martin who established the reputation of Gloria within the space of a generation. With the first acquisitions of 6 hectares (15 acres) of vines in 1942, and purchase of the chai of Château Saint-Pierre, Martin added to the estate over the years with land bought from the surrounding classed estates, including châteaux Saint-Pierre, Beychevelle, Léoville-Poyferré, Gruaud-Larose, Léoville-Barton, Ducru-Beaucaillou, Lagrange and a Saint-Julien property of Duhart-Milon, making up its present size. The estate was included in the proposal by INAO to revise the 1855 classification, and subsequently became listed in the private classification of Alexis Lichine. The current proprietor of the estate is Martin's son-in-law, Jean-Louis Triaud. The wine is widely regarded as a well-made, with the best characteristics of Saint-Julien, it is estimated by many to be on a par with the classed growths. Château Gloria has created the 'Bordeaux de Gloria'. This wine is selected by the château team in order to show the characteristics of the vintage well. This second label is available at Empire Wine at a dramatic value! VINEYARD: Soil: Deep Gunzian gravel from the Garonne River on a clay and sandy subsoil.
