The complexity and structure of a fine wine from Saint-Julien

The estate
Founded by Henri Martin, Château Gloria is one of the most iconic properties of the Saint-Julien appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux. The singularity of this estate lies in the strength of its vineyard, meticulously assembled by Henri Martin through the acquisition of several vine plots from the Classified Growths of 1855.

The vineyard
Located in the AOC Saint-Julien, the Château Gloria vineyard covers 50 hectares of vines. The plantings are dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon (65%), supplemented by Merlot (25%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (5%). The Henri Martin estates, including Château Gloria, have earned the ISO 140001 and HVE3 certifications. The vineyard of Château Gloria is cultivated with the principles of sustainable viticulture with organic and bio-control products.

The vintage
The 2019 is already shaping up to be an exceptional vintage ending in -9. A rather mild and dry winter was followed by a rainy spring full of weather contrasts. The technical teams worked very quickly to keep the vineyard in perfect sanitary condition. Then came summer with its scorching temperatures. For this 2019 vintage, the harvest lasted from September 23 to October 4. The grapes were harvested at ideal ripeness thanks to a very meticulous division of vines even within each plot.

The winemaking
After 18 to 23 days of fermentation, the wines undergo partial malolactic fermentation in barrels. The Château Gloria 2019 was aged in 45% new oak barrels.

The blend
The estate's first wine, the Château Gloria 2019 is made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (45%), supplemented with Merlot (34%), Cabernet Franc (6%) and Petit Verdot (5%).

The tasting
The first tastings of the Château Gloria 2019 suggested the birth of a great vintage. The wines are rich in colour, with a complex aromatic expression marked by notes of ripe fruit, while the palate has a beautiful definition and great structure.
