Château Gloria St Julien 2011

90.00

 

65% Cab/Sauv, 25% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot & 5% Cab/Franc

Created by Henri Martin, this estate is unique in having been built up piece by piece over several years through the purchase of parcels, the majority of which were classified as “grands crus” in 1855. The origin of the terroirs and the painstaking growing and vinification techniques are the reasons why its quality is recognised worldwide.

About This Product...

“This estate continues to go from strength to strength. Another sleeper of the vintage, the 2011 is excellent, possibly outstanding. Its dense ruby/purple color is followed by abundant aromas of cassis, forest floor, tobacco leaf and a vague hint of oak. Ripe for the vintage with excellent texture, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and a delicious, savory, broad appeal, this wine should drink well for at least a decade.”

89-91/100 Robert Parker 2012

 

“Jean-Louis Triaud reckons his 2011 is not far behind the quality of his 2009 and 2010 releases and I think he’s right. Deeply coloured and very concentrated, with dense, textured tannins, smoky oak and sweet blackberry and liquorice notes that wouldn’t look out of place in a Syrah, this is more structured than Gloria often is.Drink 2014 – 2022.”

94/100 Tim Atkin 2012
