A brilliant Gloria and one that offers great value; A beguiling aroma of sweet forest fruits, notes of fresh herbs and mineral edges; The palate has a lovely richness of texture with bright, pure fruit flavours and well integrated, yet tight tannin structure; Enjoy this wine over the next 10 to 15 years.

Gloria has long been one of the most popular wines in America, but I do not believe they have ever made better wines than they have over the last decade, and the 2009 is one of their finest. While this estate is not a classified growth, it certainly performs like one in 2009. A dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by an expressive, flamboyant bouquet of black fruits, Christmas spices, licorice and roasted Provencal herbs. Fuller-bodied, more concentrated and extracted than most vintages with soft tannins, its low acidity and a sumptuous, plump style remind me of a modern day version of the 1982 (which is fully mature but still in great shape). The 2009 Gloria is a very smart purchase for those looking to maximize their buying power. In fact, this may be the value of the vintage.
St Julien - The wines from St Julien are very similar to those from Pauillac, although generally better priced as their reputation is not as high. It is home to the most second growths of any of the left bank communes, and second only to Pauillac in the total number of classed growths.
