A Glorious Gloria
18 March 2021

Henri Martin created Chateau Gloria with a series of astute land purchases in St Julien. Nearly all the vineyard holdings belonged to the classified growths of 1855. This feat would be impossible today. Since its inception in the 1970s, Gloria has become recognised as one of the best value wines in this much vaunted appellation. Indeed, when tasted alongside more decorated peers, it is seldom overshadowed. Initially, we were a little dismissive about the 2014. We should have known better! This perennial overachiever nearly always exceeds expectations, and now, after a few years in the cellar, we are perfectly prepared to eat humble pie. The 2014 is another in a long list of triumphs. Muscular, powerful and generous, yet displaying wonderful detail: the vibrant, beautifully textured fruit combines to great effect with the honed tannic structure, it keeps the palate engaged and refreshed. A recent sample proved so tempting, it disappeared in quick time. However, those with a more patient disposition can happily tuck this away for another decade or more.    Read More
