2019 Château Gloria, St-Julien

2019 Château Gloria, St-Julien

Château Gloria wasn’t classified in 1855: it wasn’t yet a property. But had it been around, it would no doubt have got the nod: this is an impressive property. With real purity and elegance, in 2019 it’s a beauty. A smart buy: the fact it’s not classified keeps the price down.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Gloria continues a strong run of form - those rustic Glorias of the 1970s and 1980s are a distant memory. This has a precise and detailed bouquet that offers blackberry, briary, cedar and light tobacco aromas that gently unfurl in the glass. The palate is very well structured with a lovely citric undercurrent lending freshness and sharpness. This is a nimble Saint-Julien, athletic in build with a sapid finish that urges you back for another sip. Excellent.

A firm, chewy red with blackberries, earth and hints of chocolate. It’s full-bodied and very structured. Better than the 2018.
