Tasting Note:

Of the Henri Martin wines, there was one clear winner. Gloria was head and shoulders above its classified sibling, St Pierre. As always, this is dark fruited and there is no lack of ambition, but it is cohesive, intense and engaging. There's lots of extract, dark berry fruit, incense, potpourri and sweet griotte. The bright, dark fruit soon bleeds into very stony mineral tannins. Lots of grip and structure, but the fruit reasserts itself and finishes with pure fresh fruit and dark cocoa nibs. Modern but accomplished. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot, raised in 40% new oak barrels.
