Château Gloria 2016: Elegant and Precise

The Château Gloria 2016 is a Saint-Julien  with remarkable precision, resulting from both savoir-faire and the the technical benefits of their newly rebuilt cellars, including the harvest reception area and the new vat room. These new developments allowed the estate to make more precise parcel selections and therefore a more precise vinification. The 2016 Gloria blends 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc, all harvested between September 29th and October 17th.

It offers a beautiful, very purple-tinged colour with blue undertones. The nose is richly aromatic with dense black fruits notes with a touch of minerality (graphite). On the palate, this Saint-Julien shows lively and refreshing acidity, with a mid-palate of juicy fruits. The ripe tannins are well-integrated and firm, but very ripe. The finish is long and satisfying. This wine can be kept for 12 to 15 years, or even longer. Gloria 2016 is a success!

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Gloria is comprised of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot aged 14 months in 42% new and 58% one-year-old French oak. Deep garnet-purple in color, it sings of plum preserves, warm cassis and dark chocolate with touches of tobacco, bay leaves and lavender with a waft of dusty soil. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and savory in the mouth with loads of layers and a lifted finish.
