Chateau Gloria has a vineyard of 50 hectares with its deep "graves" by the deposits of the river Gironde. The true lovers of St. Julien wines know this cru as one of the best, unclassified wines from St. Julien. Partly due to their steadily good quality, this cru now belongs to the "Union des Grands Crus" with the advantage that this St Julien is still very affordable.

The 2018 Château Gloria consists of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon , 32% Merlot , 5% Petit Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc which has been aged for 14 months in French oak of which 40% are new and 60% are 1-year old barriques. In the glass, the wine has a deep garnet red color. On the nose fresh fruit, plums, cherries, dark chocolate with a hint of tobacco, bay leaves and lavender. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant and savory on the palate with many layers and fine finish. The wine has been awarded 92-94/100 Parker points and 94/100 points from James Suckling.

The Saint-Julien is one of the most famous red wines of the growing region of Bordeaux. The area of controlled Appellation contains wines from the commune of Saint-Julien-Beychevelle in the Medoc and covers an area of 3.5 to 4 km. It is located about 10 km north of Margaux on the Gironde, and borders directly on Pauillac to the north.
