Description

Chateau Gloria consistently punches above it’s weight and can happily rub shoulders with the more illustrious classed growths.  Generously fruited and exuberant in the best vintages, the quality seems to get better and better. 


This shows depth. Layers of fruit on a medium body. Juicy and bright with raspberry and cherry character and medium, creamy tannins. Fresh finish. Drink in 2022.


91 Points – James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com, January 2020


Chateau Gloria is a 50 hectare property established in 1950 by the late Henri Martin (hence not being included in the 1855 Cru Classe)  The blend changes slightly from vintage to vintage but the 50 hectare estate is planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Petit Verdot.

2018 chateau saransot dupre, cru bourgeois superieurlistrac

Bordeaux Blend

Chateau Saransot-Dupre is a favourably sited 17 hectares property that lies between Fourcas Dupré and Fourcas Hosten in Listrac.  Due to Listrac’s cooler temperatures, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are favoured over Cabernet Sauvignon to form the majority of the blend, helping them achieve optimum ripeness.  Much like Chateau Fourcas Hosten, the wines have improved year on year since 2010 and the property were put on the radar thanks to a certain Robert Parker hailing the 2010 vintage as 'classed growth quality'.  High praise indeed!

2014 Ch Saint Pierre.JPG

2014 chateau saint-pierre, 4ieme cru classe st.julien

Bordeaux Blend

The 2014 vintage of this 'under the radar' Chateau is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc.  Chateau Saint-Pierre is the smallest classed growth in Saint Julien but has a growing reputation for producing excellent, deeply coloured reds.  It is part of the Chateau Gloria stable and often eclipses it's more illustrious stablemate in blind tastings.  Prices are creeping up as their reputation grows but these beautifully made wines still represent good value.
