Chateau Gloria St Julien 2019
"The 2019 Gloria has a compelling nose: black fruit, crushed rocks, tobacco and very subtle marine scents that are all beautifully combined. Perhaps the most precise and delineated nose among an impressive array of Saint-Julien's this year. The palate is medium-bodied with a lively opening. A touch of soy infuses the black fruit; fine-boned with wonderful sapidity on the finish. Extraordinary length. Serious. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting. Drink 2027 - 2060" This is Neal Martin's highest score for Château Gloria in any vintage. 96 points. Neal Martin, vinous.com (Southwold), February 2023
