CHATEAU GLORIA - SAINT JULIEN

CHATEAU GLORIA - Saint Julien - Bordeaux, FRANCE

Intense dark purple colour. The bouquet reveals an aromatic complexity of candied red berry fruits. On the palate, the wine reveals a good balance between power and velvety. Beautiful wine, full of sap.

VINEYARD

A vineyard with an average vine age of 40 years distributed over three zones, in the centre of Beychevelle, to the west and to the north of the appellation (bordering Pauillac).

Created by Henri Martin and the only one of its kind as this 50-hectare vineyard was put together piece-by-piece over a number of years, through the purchase of plots exclusively from grands crus classified in 1855. The origin of the terroirs, the care taken over the growing and the vinification all help to explain its world-renowned quality.
