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.
A Growth Claret in all but name, produced from Grand Cru Classé vineyards, this wine is laden with crunchy cassis fruit, intense and concentrated with a firm tannic structure and a classic, leafy dimension. A very enjoyable claret.

To produce the wine of Chateau Gloria the grapes are vinified in 76 different stainless steel tanks that range in size from 50 hectoliters up to 178 hectoliters. Malolactic fermentation takes place in barrel. Chateau Gloria is aged in 40% new, French oak barrels for 14 months. On average, the production is close to 20,000 cases of Chateau Gloria per year.
