Glamourous Glorias
05 May 2022

Château Gloria’s 2018 & 2019 are a brace of wonderful wines which would enhance any cellar. The patchwork of top vineyards that make up the estate were bought from a plethora of famed Châteaux, including such luminaries as Ducru Beaucaillou and Leovilles Barton and Poyferre. Now consistently producing superb wines at a keen price, Antonio Galloni describes Gloria as “one of the best values in Bordeaux.” Under the guidance of Jean-Louis Triaud, the winemaking has become increasingly refined and as Neal Martin asserts, “those rustic Glorias of the 1970s and 1980s are a distant memory”. In 2018 and 2019 the Château has honed two fantastically polished wines from these two contrastingly extrovert vintages. A wine of “terrific balance and tons of class” in the 2018, one that “feels so… effortless”, and a “polished, pure, elegant style” in 2019. We fully endorse this redoubtable pair. Full tasting notes can be found below.

The 2018 Gloria has a wonderful, harmonious bouquet of copious blackberry, briary, cedar and tobacco notes that just feels so... effortless. The very harmonious palate offers pure black fruit laced with graphite. Displaying moderate weight and fine acidity, and quite linear and focused on the finish, this is a very classy Gloria that may warrant a higher score down the line. Vinous – Neal Martin - 93 Points
