The Château Gloria 2008 has a fresh, well-defined bouquet with tobacco and graphite notes. It is very clean with well-integrated and judicious use of oak. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded black cherry and spice-tinged entry leading to a plush, well-defined finish. This is a well-made Saint Julien that should age well over 10-15 years. Tasted January 2012.

A stunning sleeper of the vintage, this beautiful, already irresistible, plum/garnet-colored 2008 is a wine to purchase by the case. It possesses a dense plum/purple color, a glorious perfume of Christmas fruitcake, cedarwood, black currants, jammy cherries and licorice, medium to full body and a silky personality. It will provide both a hedonistic and intellectual turn-on over the next 10-15 years.

This polished red shows good grip from the ripe, well-integrated tannins, which support plum, currant, loam and tobacco flavors. Not heavy, but fills the palate nicely. Balanced and harmonious. Drink now through 2016... This polished red shows good grip from the ripe, well-integrated tannins, which support plum, currant, loam and tobacco flavors. Not heavy, but fills the palate nicely.

Huge nose, full of decadent chocolate and cassis with a pretty floral layer floating in the middle. Black cherry and licorice linger on the palate, and red fruit flavors lead to a medium length finish full of fine dusty tannins and a hint of new oak. Although the tannins are still flexing their muscles, this tasty St. Julien drinks well now with some decanting and will cellar for an additional 10+ years. A very expressive Left Bank wine that will impress you with layer upon layer of flavors. Just delicious.
