Château Gloria Red Bordeaux Blend St. Julien 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: "As usual, the dark ruby/purple-colored 2005 Gloria is a model of the<br/>fruit-driven, minimally-oaked style of Bordeaux winemaking. It reveals a<br/>broader structure and more density and delineation than usual along with<br/>tremendous ripeness, sweet fruit, and moderate tannin. This hedonistic<br/>St.-Julien will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age, and last for 12-15."<br/>88-90/100. (Robert Parker)

Violets on the nose, with licorice, blackberry and fresh cépe. On the palate, some really tart acidity. Needs more age to balance out better. Strong tannin. I'd estimate it will be great in another 5-10 years. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 8/7/10

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 92Licorice, blackberry and fresh cpe on the nose. Full and velvety-textured, with lots of fruit and a long, caressing finish. Pretty and rich. The best Gloria in years. Best after 2014.

A big-time sleeper of the vintage, this St.-Julien reveals notes of tapenade, spice box, cedar, sweet black cherries, and black currants. An opulent texture, terrific fruit, medium to full body, and abundant concentration suggest this stunning Gloria will provide plenty of pleasure over the next 15 years.

Ch. Gloria was not classied in the famous 1855 ranking of Medoc chateaux. This 20th century house came into existence because of one man's dream to own a classed growth property. The house emerged from an amalgamtion of well-situated parcels securedfrom Leoville-Poyferré, Leoville-Barton and Ducru-Beaucaillou among others. Historically, these wines demonstrate excellent capacity to age. 2005 was an unbeatable vintage for Bordeaux, yet this offering maintains its structure well under the plump ripe fruit of the warm year. Notes of summer plums, flesh cassis, and graphite are evident up front as firm tannins seize upon the lingering finish.

No official place in classification, did not exist at that time. Since 1942, with added parcels purchased from Leoville-Poyferré, Leoville-Barton and Ducru-Beaucaillou among others. Historically demonstrates excellent capacity to age.

One of the finest Glorias I have ever tasted, the dense ruby/purple-tinged 2005 reveals a big, sweet perfume of black olives, black cherries, cassis, spice box, and cedar. Boasting terrific fruit, med... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Chateau Gloria St. Julien 1500ml
