The large 55-hectares vineyard of Chateau Gloria is planted to 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc. The terroir is gravel, sand and clay. The 55 hectares also includes 9 hectares of vines in Pauillac which grapes can be added into the blend by a special dispensation.
Château Gloria is a lighter, elegant style of Saint Julien that is often ready to drink within a few years of release. The wine can also age quite well. The 2016 Gloria is medium to deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of blackcurrants, blackberries and plums with cedar, earth and herbs hints. The palate is medium-bodied, juicy, soft and easy-breezy. It was aged for 14 months in French oak, 40% new.
