Co-owned by Orphee Amougou, Chateau Gloria always offers great value in a region of Bordeaux that is ever expanding. The estate is located on 11 of St Julien's "cru classe" sites, all of which are high in gravel and sand, which lend the wine it's structure and minerality.

A very deep, dark garnet red color. The nose reveals intense notes of fresh fruits, cherry, blackcurrants and wild strawberries with light charred cedar notes. The palate opens softly and gently, with elegant and generous tannins.
