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+)

The 2014 Gloria is a bold, powerful wine. Dark cherry, smoke, licorice, tobacco and underbrush effortlessly fill out its frame. Ample and richly textured, the 2014 offers remarkable depth, power and pure pedigree. Pomegranate, blood orange and iron add further complexity on the finish. This is a superb showing. Tasted two times. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous)

Inky and viscous, deep crimson in the glass.

Once upon a time there was a perfect wine region. It was called Bordeaux. It was run by crusty old French families who produced beautifully restrained elegant and deeply structured wines that were appreciated by British toffs, the French aristocracy, and a few American europhiles. Then wine consultants, hedge fund billionaires, and Asian plutocrats took over this little patch and turned into an industry. But for some reason, nobody noticed little Chateau Gloria, which still makes a classic and reasonably priced left bank Bordeaux with menthol, dark black fruit, oak, and leather. It is in no way newfangled or "reimagined." It is what it should be: a classic old world Bordeaux. Vive la différence.
