The color is purple and the wine has a sustained, very intensive nose of red fruits. In the mouth it has a firm, noble structurewith voluptuous fruit which combines a an exceptional roundness and finesse. For today, the tasting is lovely, indicating a perfect balance.
"Licorice, blackberry and fresh cèpe 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. 18,000 cases made. "
"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."
