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.

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