  • Neal Martin, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    The 2022 Gloria was picked from 12-26 September and matured in 40% new oak, slightly less than the Saint-Pierre. It has a perfumed, floral nose with crushed violet infusing the black cherry and blueberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with sumptuous tannins that belie the structure underneath. With pure fruit and well-judged acidity, this 2022 is sensual with a persistent and lightly spiced finish. Superb. Drink 2029-2060

  • Wine Advocate, April 2023, Score: 91-93

    A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 9% Petit Verdot, the 2022 Gloria bursts with aromas of cherries, sweet berries, petals and spices, framed by a deft touch of creamy new oak. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with a succulent, enveloping core of fruit and supple tannins, it's a gourmand but nicely balanced Saint-Julien that will offer a broad drinking window.

  • Antonio Galloni, April 2023, Score: 91-93

    The 2022 Gloria is terrific. Bold and punchy, Gloria offers all of its typical charms but with an extra kick of fruit richness. Sumptuous red/purplish fruit, blood orange, spice, mint and rose petals are nicely dialed up in this super-expressive, delicious Saint-Julien. Tasted two times. Drink 2027-2047.

  • Goedhuis, April 2023, Score: 92-94

    Tasted twice, the nose was inviting on both instances, brimming with ripe purple berries and bramble fruits, cedar and wood spice. In the mouth it is plump, infused with juicy acidity that carries the high-toned red fruit. With veins of slate minerality and well-integrated fine-grained tannins, this is light and appealing.

  • James Suckling, April 2023, Score: 94-95

    A linear and very fine wine with blackberry, blueberry and currant character. Hints of cedar and stone. Medium to full body. Linear and fine finish. Very well done.

  • Jeb Dunnuck, April 2023, Score: 94-96

    A gem in the vintage is going to be the 2022 Château Gloria, which comes from 50 hectares of vines and is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, and the rest Petit Verdot. Harvested between September 14 and 26, with yields of 34 hectoliters per hectare, it offers an inky purple hue to go with medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of crème de cassis, ripe black cherries, spicy oak, and graphite. Hitting 13.8% alcohol and aging in 60% new French oak, it's a pure, layered, elegant yet concentrated Saint-Julien that readers will love. Tasted twice.

  • Matthew Jukes, April 2023, Score: 17+

    Château Gloria (Saint-Julien) 50 Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 Merlot, 9 Petit Verdot, 6 Cabernet Franc This is a red-fruited style, which is somewhat surprising given the recipe, and even though the oak is reasonably strident, there is plenty of ripeness here to carry the flavour along at a brisk pace. Open and conversational, this is a decent Gloria, and if you can give the oak five years to settle and integrate, it will be a rather stylish and tasty wine.

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.
