Description

Chateau Gloria is an unclassified Bordeaux red wine from the St Julien wine-growing appellation but don’t let its humble status fool you, many consider this to be on a par, if not better, than many other classified growth in the region. The winery is located in the commune of Saint-Julien-Beychevelle and the vineyards are scattered amongst some of the most famous vineyards of the St Julien distributed over three zones, in the centre of Beychevelle, to the west and to the north of the appellation (bordering Pauillac). Over the years the parcels of vines have been bought from exclusively from Chateaux classified as grands crus in the famous Bordeaux classification of 1855.

Chateau Gloria was founed by Henri Martin in 1942 when he purchased 6 hectares of vineyards at the same time that he purchased Chateau Saint Pierre. Today the estate comprises some 50 hectares and and the current owner is Jean-Louis Triaud, Martin’s son-in-law. The vineyards are planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignona, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. The vineyards are primarily located on soils made up of Gunzian gravel covering a layer of clay and sand.

The grapes are all harvested by hand and the wine is fermented in thermo-regulated stainless steel vats. After vinification the wine is agd for 14 months in oak casks, 40% of which are renewed each year.
