2020 Chateau Gloria Reviews


95 Pointz Wine Enthusiast


“Under the same ownership as neighboring Château Saint-Pierre, this estate produced a fine, stylish wine that will develop well. The outlines are already there with spice and black currant fruits underling the tannic structure.”


94 Pointz James Suckling


“Very focused and poised with blackberry, blackcurrant, and graphite character. It’s full-to medium-bodied with racy tannins and a long, dynamic finish. Will be interesting to see if 2020 is better than 2019.”


93 Pointz Jeb Dunnuck


“Playing in the same class as the 2016, 2018, and 2019, the 2020 Château Gloria reveals a vivid purple hue as well beautiful blue fruits intermixed with gravelly earth, graphite, and crushed stone. I was able to taste this on two separate occasions and it was brilliant both times, offering medium to full-bodied richness and a powerful yet weightless mouthfeel as well as silky tannins. It also has a terrific sense of freshness. It will drink well relatively young yet keep for two decades.



93 Pointz Vinous


“The 2020 Gloria has an intense nose of penetrating blackberry, raspberry, crushed violet, and crushed stone aromas. After 20 minutes, this just blossoms in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, fine acidity, and just a touch of espresso and orange peel toward the finish, which remains taught and focused. What a wonderful Gloria! This might actually surpass its sibling, Château St. Pierre, this year.”

92 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate


“Opaque purple-black colored, the 2020 Chateau Gloria comes soaring out of the glass with notes of blackcurrant cordial, preserved plums, and blueberry compote, followed by suggestions of powdered cinnamon, cedar chest, and menthol, plus a waft of graphite. The medium to full-bodied palate is completely coated with juicy black fruits, framed by grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long and spicy. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 11% Petit Verdot, aging for approximately 14 months in French oak barrels, 40% new. The alcohol is 13.3%.”

96 Pointz Jane Anson, Master of Wine Inside Bordeaux


“A brilliant wine from a great vintage in St Julien, rich, silky, and utterly delicious. Espresso, cocoa, creamy blackberry, and cassis, with juicy depths, spellbinding, concentrated, and full of charm and character. 45% new oak. Remi di Constanzo technical director.”
