Reviews for 2005 Chateau Gloria St. Julien

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
Licorice blackberry and fresh cèpe on the nose. Full and velvety-textured with lots of fruit and a long caressing finish. Pretty and rich. The best Gloria in years. Best after 2014. 18000 cases made. -JS

The Château Gloria 2005 has what you might describe as an “airy” bouquet armed with bright brambly red berry fruit, boysenberry and touches of cedar coming through, atypically showy in style but there is nothing wrong... The Château Gloria 2005 has what you might describe as an “airy” bouquet armed with bright brambly red berry fruit, boysenberry and touches of cedar coming through, atypically showy in style but there is nothing wrong with that, especially in this vintage. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin: plenty of tobacco and dried herbs infusing the black fruit with a convincing austere finish that lingers long in the mouth. Give this Gloria several years to soften. Excellent.

This wine is glorious – so to speak – with loads of exuberant fruit and plenty of cedary forest floor, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrant and cherry fruit. This dark ruby/purple-colored wine is again an over-achieving... This wine is glorious – so to speak – with loads of exuberant fruit and plenty of cedary forest floor, Christmas fruitcake, blackcurrant and cherry fruit. This dark ruby/purple-colored wine is again an over-achieving beauty. Drink it over the next 15 or so years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Quite toasty and developed on the nose. Forward and easy – perhaps not the most ambitious but a nicely balanced drink with just a hint of dark chocolate. This was the group favourite. 17/20
