Château Gloria Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 2009 (375ml)

$37.95

There have been many great Glorias over the years as this property consistently over-performs. The 2009 may be the finest yet produced. Loaded with notes of Christmas fruitcake intermixed with red and black currants, licorice, spice box, and blackberries, this inky/purple-colored wine is atypically full-bodied with a viscous texture, and loads of tannin, extract, and richness. Deep and layered, it will offer thrilling sipping over the next 25+ years. Robert Parker

Was really looking forward to this wine, given the hype, but way too much Brettanomyces for my taste. Barnyard aromas overpowered most of the fruit on the nose, and palate was similar. Very silky and smooth, but not a lot of intensity or completely...or fruit. Meh.

Strawberries and raspberries and a dash of Christmas spice. A light cake? Not exactly. This Gloria might continue adding complexity in bottle. Not quite trumpeting-angels good, but very pleasant for sure.

Very beautiful wine in a very nice vintage, already easy drinkable. Deep nose with cooked black fruits, mouth with menthol aroma, strong tannins and a bit of acidity. Will last !

Dark purple color. Aromas of juicy black fruits and spice. Palate displays ripe fruit blackberries, cherries and berries, round tannins, combined with some mineral notes on the long rich finish. Very nice offering.

What really stands out is the texture. Super dark fruits. Supple tannins. Solid effort and value. Happy to sock away many more bottles of this beauty.

Vintage 2009 - chocolate, vanilla, shy fruit, hint of spices, impeccable balance and surprisingly accessible thanks to very round, silky tannins. #bordeaux #saintjulien

Chocolate, leather, tobacco, mocca, very rich. Blackberries. And still a lot to come.
