    September 29, 2019 - Dark colour; pretty fruit-led nose, quite undeveloped on the palate, and the fruit and oak don't feel completely integrated yet, so leave next bottle 5 years?

    September 26, 2019 - I like how this is showing today. Mature and ready to, the wine is medium-bodied, elegant, refined, fresh and focuses you on its ripe red, earthy fruits and tobacco leaf notes easily. Drink this now and over the next 12-15 years.

    September 25, 2019 - Very delicious and develope nicely over a 90 minutes meal. Good value for the money (or when I bought it some year ago). A very balanced wine; it is ready to drink now, and will improve for another 5 years. Something that will go very nicely with a meal.

    September 12, 2019 - Really nice after a two hour decant. Deep purple color, berry nose. Plum dominates the palate, with moderate tannins lingering afterwards. This wine is stepping up to a new level. Fun to watch its evolution.

    (Château Gloria (St Julien)) A slightly deeper, richer, more roasted style of fruit than seen with St Pierre, the other Triaud wine, but the toasted oak elements are very similar. No less impressive on the palate though, where the very solid layers of fruit are interwoven with coffee and savoury spice. Supple, structured, with a good solid feel to the substance of the wine, with plenty of midpalate weight and the necessary tannin and acidity to support it. Quite grippy in the finish. An impressive effort for Gloria.
