Winemaker's Notes

From the soils, among the best of the appelation, very classic vines are grown - 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. Chateau Gloria was one of the first to believe in Petit Verdot as a very good variety to add color, tannins and aromatic richness to its wines.

Critical Acclaim

"Tasted blind at the 2007 Bordeaux horizontal in Southwold. The Gloria 2007 has an attractive bouquet with dusty blackberry and graphite aromas, a touch of Hoi Sin in the background with well-integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with pencil shavings on the entry, building nicely to a rather austere middle that fans out nicely towards the more fruit-driven finish, though it is tobacco and sous-bois that lingers on the after-taste. This is an "interesting" Claret whose development I will watch closely"

But it has 11 excellent second, third and fourth growths, and the highest proportion of classified growths of the top four. It doesn't have the concentration and powerful punch of a...
