  • What the experts say...

    The 2017 Gloria is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of warm blackcurrants, baked blackberries and plums with cedar, earth and herbs hints. The palate is medium-bodied, juicy, soft and easy-breezy. The blend is 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. It was aged for 14 months in French oak, 40% new. About 65% of the production was produced as grand vin. Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 16/03/2020

    Information about domain Château Gloria

    Château Gloria’s plots were acquired by Henri Martin, mayor of Saint-Julien Beychevelle during the 20th century. This unavoidable figure of the Médoc (one of the founding members of the Commanderie du Bontemps) has raised this vintage to the level of excellent classified growths of the appellation. It is now his son-in-law Jean-Louis Triaud who manages the property, as well as the fourth classified growth Château Saint-Pierre. With the help of Jean Triaud and the director Rémi Di Costanzo, he now achieves a wonderful wine 0a vintage after vintage.
