2019 Château Gloria, St.-Julien: £295 IB per dozenTuesday, June 16
Classic St.-Julien terroir is on offer from Château Gloria at just £295 per dozen. Neal Martin's excellent score of 93-95 points is accompanied by a glowing note, describing it as "a nimble Saint-Julien, athletic in build with a sapid finish that urges you back for another sip. Excellent." We enjoyed tasting cask samples of this and found the intensity of cassis fruit very open and immediately enjoyable.
Offered En Primeur, landing Spring 2022.
2019 Château Gloria, St.-Julien Cru Classé
"The 2019 Gloria continues a strong run of form - those rustic Glorias of the 1970s and 1980s are a distant memory. This has a precise and detailed bouquet that offers blackberry, briary, cedar and light tobacco aromas that gently unfurl in the glass. The palate is very well structured with a lovely citric undercurrent lending freshness and sharpness. This is a nimble Saint-Julien, athletic in build with a sapid finish that urges you back for another sip. Excellent. 93-95 points." Neal Martin, Vinous.com
