Chateau Gloria Saint-Julien

Wine Details

Wine Description

(WA 90-93) This estate has been fashioning terrific wines over recent vintages, and the 2008 is an opulent, dense purple-hued effort displaying sweet creme de cassis fruit intermixed with hints of tapenade, licorice, and roasted herbs. It exhibits fabulously pure fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and a flamboyant, almost exotic richness. Very ripe, pure, and long, this will be a wine to drink young, but given past examples, it should be capable of lasting 15-20 years. It is a fabulous sleeper of the vintage.

    Thin for a Bordeaux, structured, dry but good fruit. Drier and shallower as it opens, less nose, slightly bitter?
