Tasting Note:

This is St Pierre's little brother, and while it too leans towards a gutsy style, it more often than big brother gets it spot on. This is by no means the most vivid or exiting Gloria we have tasted, in fact, at times it appears a bit forced, however, there is lots of positive extract, notes of dark berry fruit, Christmas cake, dried fruits and minerals. What impresses is that the fruit remains clear and present on the finish and is not overawed by the tannic structure of the wine. This should be good value for those who like the big, robust style from this Chateau. * It is worth noting that we tasted at the St Julien UGC at the end of a very long day. We felt that the samples were not necessarily representative. Our notes are an honest account of what we tasted, however, we are sure that the wines are much better than our notes suggest.
