Château Gloria 2002

 Incl. VAT & DP1 Imperial (6l)

An ample Saint-Julien red wine

Produced on a total surface of 50 hectares and from vines having an average age of 40-years-old, the Château Gloria is a Cru bourgeois-classified wine made in the Saint-Julien appellation. The 2002 vintage is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.

Showing a beautiful dark red colour, the Château Gloria 2002 has very fruity aromas on the nose. The body is compact with lovely ripe fruit with enveloping and seductive tannins. A full-bodied wine with a lot of richness.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Abundant amounts of licorice, smoke, herbs, cherries, and currants emerge from this deep ruby/purple-tinged, full-bodied, up-front, flamboyant 2002. It relies more on fruit and terroir than new oak to seduce the taster. Surprisingly supple and fleshy for the vintage, it is undeniably a sleeper of the vintage. Drink it over the next decade.
