Château Gloria 2010

 Incl. VAT & DP1 Double-Magnum (3l)

2010 Saint-Julien

The outstanding 2010 Chateau Gloria is 63% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, and 5% Cabernet Franc.

This Saint-Julien reveals solid purple colour and complex aromas: dark berries, spices, and vanilla. The deep, dense palate is perfectly combined with supple, creamy, and excellently matured tannins. The finish carries lovely length ending on toasted notes.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Gloria is an ass-kicking, fabulous value once again from this estate, which would probably be classified if the 1855 hierarchy of the wines of the Medoc were ever done again. Abundant notes of cedar wood, fruitcake, flowers, creme de cassis and kirsch are all present in this full-bodied, opulent, dense, dark ruby/purple wine. It is slightly more restrained than the flamboyant 2009, but equal in quality. This is a juicy, well-proportioned, sensationally concentrated, super-ripe Gloria to drink over the next decades. Of course, it is a sleeper of the vintage, given the reasonable price it normally sells for.
