Marks and reviews
Founded by Henri Martin, Château Gloria is an iconic reference among the fine wines of Saint-Julien, an appellation located on Bordeaux's Left Bank. This estate’s distinctiveness lies in its strong vineyard, meticulously built up by Henri Martin through the acquisition of plots of vines from Grands Crus Classés in 1855.
Located in the Saint-Julien AOC, Château Gloria’s vineyard spreads across 50 hectares of vines. The vineyard is dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented by Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The Henri Martin estates, including Château Gloria, bear the ISO 140001 and HVE3 certificates. Château Gloria’s vineyard is managed in a steady way with the use of organic products and bio-control.
The mild spring, combined with a lot of rainfall, advanced an early and even flowering period. Although July was hot and dry, August was punctuated by rainy spells. September was marked by alternating rain, wind and high temperatures. The harvest went smoothly thanks to the perfectly healthly condition of the vineyard and the grape’s optimal ripeness.
Winemaking and ageing
The grapes were harvested by plot, and then sorted in cellars equipped with new equipment which enhanced the very precise vinification process. The wine was aged in oak barrels, 40% of which were new.
Cabernet Sauvignon (60%)
Petit Verdot (7%)
Cabernet Franc (6%).
This fine Saint-Julien wine showcases an alluring balance, delicious ripe fruit aromas and velvety tannins.
