Description
The Winery

Château Gloria is a wine estate in Saint-Julien. It did not feature in the official Bordeaux Classification of 1855, but instead was formed through numerous purchases of plots from classed growths including Beychevelle, Léoville-Barton and Gruaud-Larose. It is praised for its consistent performance and widely regarded by critics as being worthy of Cru Classé status.

In all there are 50 hectares (124 acres) of vineyards in several plots – in the middle of Beychevelle, in the north on the border with Pauillac, and in the west of the appellation. The soils are primarily composed of gravel over clay and sand, and plantings are 65 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 percent Merlot, and 5 percent each of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Château Gloria harvests grapes by hand, and fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine is then typically aged for 14 months in casks, with around 40 percent new oak.

The estate is reasonably young by Bordeaux standards, and was established in 1942 when Henri Martin bought a plot of land and a cellar. - Information from Wine Searcher
