One of the better-known Crus Bourgeois of the Medoc.
Had another ‘11 in cellar. Dark Ruby with aromas of black and blue fruits with tobacco spice. Palate displays blueberry and blackberry with cacao and earthy herbs. Smooth characteristics, well balance full body wine with velvet tannins. Not a satisfying wine. Prrfect now. Consistent wine!

Chose this bottle on a whim. Was told this won’t compete with the big boys, but I grabbed it anyway and was rewarded!! Lovely acid framing some fruit and herbs. Super pretty.

Love half off bottle night!
Fruit is fading, graphite and metallic notes are front of palate, 30 min in decanter so far.

Strawberries and raspberries and a dash of Christmas spice. A light cake? Not exactly. This Gloria might continue adding complexity in bottle. Not quite trumpeting-angels good, but very pleasant for sure.

Another gorgeous bottle of Gloria. The nose is intoxicating in and of itself, with perfumed notes of cedar, mint, anise, field berries, and flowers. The palate is still a bit austere, but not enough to turn me away.. beautiful texture, soft red fruits, some minerals, and a seamless finish. Gloria continues to impress.

Bright ruby red. A touch green and earthy on the nose. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Notes of unripe cherries and earthiness on the palate with a long finish. This is a baby that needs some time to develop. Give it a few years in the bottle before opening. Drink from 2019 till 2030. (89+)
