Qualified as a real feat, since the vineyards of Saint-Julien represent 900 hectares, belonging almost entirely to the appellation's 11 grands crus classés.
The 1970s would mark the culmination with a Domaine covering an area of 44 hectares, mostly made up of terroirs of crus classés, some of them among the most prestigious. a further 6 hectares have since been added to the vineyard.
And if Château isn't Cru Classé, the reason is quite simple: when it was classified in 1855, it didn't exist. In any case, this Saint-Julien lives up to its name, a name of gLoire and success, but also of faith. That of a man of our time who knew how to "invent" a new cru and bring it to the highest renown.
Vineyard grape varieties: 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.
The grapes are harvested by hand for an annual production of around 220,000 bottles.

Description Château Gloria 2018 Magnum.
The wine has a sumptuous garnet-red color, brilliant with purple highlights. On the nose, notes of blackcurrant, blueberry and plum blend harmoniously. After aeration, light notes of black pepper and toast appear, adding depth. On the palate, the initial attack is supple, becoming increasingly rounded. The mid-palate is massive and develops silky, very coating tannins. Intense black fruit aromas are apparent from the outset, and persist thereafter for long Secondes.
