50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Located in the St. Julien appellation of Bordeaux, Chateau Gloria was created by Henri Martin. The 50 hectare vineyard was put together piece by piece over a number of years through the purchase of plots exclusively from Grands Crus classified in 1855. The vineyards are made up of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, with the average age of the vines being 40 years. The grapes are all hand picked during the harvest and vinified in stainless steel vats to produce truly exceptional wines.

James Suckling: 93-94/100
Blackberries and blueberries with stone and sandalwood undertones. It’s medium- to full-bodied with integrated tannins that are polished and refined. Long finish. Solid and rather muscular. Could move up a notch.

Jane Anson: 93/100
Love this inky depths of the plummy fruits and deep rich chcolate notes, great quality with depths and balance. Last year of organic conversion.

Antonio Galloni - Vinous: 91-93/100
The 2023 Gloria is bright, punchy and super-expressive. Red-toned fruit, crushed flowers, white pepper and mocha are nicely dialed up. this super-classic Saint-Julien delivers the goods. Best of all, it should be a great value.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate: 90-92/100
An attractive effort, the 2023 Gloria offers up aromas of dark berries and plums mingled with subtle hints of violets and licorice. It's medium to full-bodied, taut and lively, with good depth and persistence. This blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet France is the third and final vintage of organic conversion at Gloria.

Lisa-Perrotti Brown - The Wine Independent: 89-91/100
The 2023 Gloria has a deep garnet-purple color. It is a little sluggish to begin, with notes of sauteed herbs, damp soil, and tar soon opening out to a core of stewed strawberries, plums, and cedar chest. The medium-bodied palate is chewy, with nice freshness and just enough savory-laced fruit, finishing a little short and firm.
