2000 Château Gloria, St-Julien
With an interesting and unique history, this property was not included in the 1855 classification as the parcels of vineyard that now comprise Chateau Gloria were in the hands of its more prestigious neighbours. Thanks to the founding father and son team of Alfred and Henri Martin the property was built up piecemeal through the purchase of parcels of vineyards from Ch Beychevelle, Ch Leoville-Poyferre, Ch Gruard-Larose. Henri Martin continued to build upon the estate through the introduction of numerous improvements in the cellar, including stainless steel fermentation vessels. Robert Parker rates numerous vintages as equal to classified growths, this wine has already opened up nicely but also has a lot of life left in it.
This beautiful Bordeaux fruit bomb offers abundant notes of black currants, herbs, cherries, cedar, and spice box. Fleshy and medium to full-bodied with no hard edges, the 2000 Gloria is a total thrill to consume. Enjoy it over the next decade, perhaps longer
