Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, October 2011

    Rich structured dark mature berry fruit aromas. In the palate this has lovely sweetness of fruit, with a natural richness and long textured finish. A fine example of quality St julien

    Goedhuis, October 2011

    Classic through and through, this 2004 opens with a nose of celery seed, leather and forest floor. Ample yet firm and notably Médoc in style. One of our favourite unclassified Bordeaux.

    Quality is soaring at this excellent Chateau that really ought to enjoy classed growth status. Situated across the road from Ducru Beaucaillou and Branaire Ducru, its terroir is outstanding. This is a silky, very pure wine with lots of dark cherry fruit. It has a firm but ripe structure and a lovely bittersweet finish.Highly recommended. Drink 2012-2025

    This stunningly rich sleeper of the vintage reveals oodles of herb-tinged black currant and cherry fruit, medium to full body, silky tannin, and low acidity. Gloriously fruity, soft, and classic in its aromatic and flavor dimensions, it can be enjoyed over the next decade. Drink 2007-2017

    Score: 15

    Brownish deep purple. Sweet, simple, overworked flavours. Little terroir effect. Very astringent on the finish. Furry – not pure. Very chewy finish. Falls away. Drink 2015-2020

Producer

Château Gloria

Château Gloria was created in the 1940s from parcels of Beychevelle, Léoville Poyferré, GruaudLarose and Duhart Milon. Due to its late arrival, it could not partake in the 1855 Classification and as a result, it is one of the best value châteaux of the appellation.

Region

St Julien

St Julien is like the middle child of the Médoc - not as assertive as Pauillac or as coquettish as Margaux. It lies firmly between the two more outspoken communes and as a result produces a blend of them both. St Julien's wines have often been sought out by aficionados for their balance and consistency, particularly in the UK. Yet due to its middle child nature, it can occasionally be overlooked globally and as a result underrated by those markets outside the UK. Despite the fact that it has no first growths, it has several second growths including Léoville Las Cases, Léoville Barton, Léoville Poyferré and Ducru Beaucaillou as well as the celebrated châteaux such as Talbot and Beychevelle.
