Château Gloria, Saint-Julien 2014
A deep red violet color. A jammy nose of red fruits. Notes of licorice and vanilla. On entering the mouth it is silky with an exceptional melting quality. Highly precise tannins with exceptional elegance and length. This wine promises a great future ahead. It has all the elements in balance - rich tannins, intense black fruits and fragrant acidity - to suggest successful long-term aging.
