Château Gloria

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.

Tasting Notes

The bouquet shows perfume and class, the palate is mid weight, warm and open with notes of baked cherry, blackberry and spice.

Food Matches

Enjoy with a hearty steak and kidney pie with seasonal vegetables
