This Château is somewhat of an anomaly in Bordeaux. It is made up of small plots
purchased from neighbouring Classed Growth properties, including Château Léoville-
Poyferré, Château Gruaud-Larose and Château Duhart Milon (who owned a small
plot in St-Julien). However, once they were sold to the creator of Château Gloria,
Monsieur Henri Martin, the vineyards ceased to possess their Classed Growth status.
It is, however, Growth Claret in all but name. 45 hectares of vines with an average age
of 45 years old, it continually performs year in year out to the highest level.
Masculine with tight cassis fruits, there is a lovely fresh graphite quality and carefully integrated cedar oak. The finish is full of energy. Finely balanced, this wine will surely prove to be an excellent claret in the years to come.
