Chateau Gloria has created Le Bordeaux de Gloria, its “third” label wine. The 2016 Gloria is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels for 8 months. Chateau Gloria is a classic Saint-Julien, created by Henri Martin and the only one of its kind as this 50-hectare vineyard was put together piece-by-piece over a number of years through the purchase of plots exclusively from grands crus classified in 1855. It is a vineyard covering 50 hectares, with an average vine age of 40 years, spread across three areas, in the middle of Beychevelle and then in the west and the north of the appellation (bordering Pauillac) on soil made up of Gunzian gravel covering a layer of clay and sand.
