Château Gloria - Saint-Julien
Unique in its kind, this 50 hectare vineyard has been built up piece by piece over several years by buying plots of land exclusively from grands crus classé in 1855. Annual production is around 200,000 bottles per year.
What are the specificities of Château Gloria?
The estate is one of the most recent of the appellation. The purchase of the first 8 hectares of vines by Henri Martin, creator of the wine estate, dates back to 1942, during the war. It was then the birth of what we call today
Currently managed by Jean-Louis Triaud, the vineyard offers a wine made from different grape varieties for tasting:
- Cabernet Sauvignon 65%
- Merlot 25%
- Petit Verdot 5%
- Cabernet Franc 5%
After traditional vinification, the wine is aged in 40% new French oak barrels. Roundness, suppleness, finesse come up many times in the tasting comments. Having unfortunately never had a revision in the classification of the Grands Crus of 1855, the Château Gloria is a great Saint-Julien who has nothing to envy to certain Grands Crus classés from 1855. Perfect balance of finesse and body, intense nose dominated by fruit are all qualities that distinguish the wines of the Château Gloria. The origin of the gravelly and sandy-clay soils, the care taken in the cultivation and vinification, explain its world-renowned quality.
In order to best express its terroir, the estate also produces a second wine, Peymartin.
